Who we are:

From Roots To Wings, Inc, is a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt non-profit, incorporated and governed by the laws of Maryland.  We are not affiliated with any religious entity and do not ask or require those we serve to adhere to any faith or philosophy. We were co-founded in 2014 by Ron Pagano, JD and Jason Kramer, and began as a community organization, named Clint’s Cupboard, to honor a local homeless young man. It is operated by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, Officers and Advisers. Our work is supported by generous donors, volunteers and private foundations.

Our Mission and Vision:

From Roots To Wings envisions ending homelessness, by providing basic necessities, caring support, training, housing, counseling and innovative programs, designed to empower homeless individuals and families to achieve self-sufficiency.

Our mission is twofold: 
  1. Provide basic necessities, such as food, clothing, toiletries, a smile and conversation;
  2. Create a plan to provide a permanent ‘housing first’ solution, with the end goal of ending homelessness.

From Roots To Wings operates on integrity, compassion, honesty, respect and professionalism, through positive and caring relationships built with those we serve.  We believe in the principle that safe, secure, stable housing is a fundamental human right, and, until we are able to accomplish that, our goal is to offer basic needs (food, clothing & toiletries). We will never sacrifice our values in the name of expediency, convenience or financial inadequacy.

We will never discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity (including gender expression), sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, family/parental status, income derived from a public assistance program, political beliefs, or non-use or abuse of alcohol or drugs.
