OUR LOCAL MISSIONS
Elkton Presbyterian Church is involved in many local missions, which are all located below. If you would like to be involved in any of these community missions, please reach out to them directly.
In addition to serving as a homeless shelter for children and families in the community, Deep Roots works with children, who are disconnected through homelessness or other similar marginalization: connecting hearts. Our program will challenge children to envision a brighter future, to sustain healthy relationships and to navigate a course towards personal and social responsibility through better life experiences, with mentors, providing healthy life-models for all future relationships.

The Paris Foundation is a Christian non-profit organization serving the poor and homeless in Elkton, Maryland, where we provide food and clothing on a daily basis.
By partnering with The Paris Foundation, you’re not just helping a homeless person off the street and moving them toward rehabilitation – you’re helping transform a life, heal a family, bring reconciliation and break the cycle of destructive behavior or poverty – from generation to generation. It is about reaching out to one person at a time to help meet their immediate needs and introduce them to the hope that only God can provide- so they can truly make real changes in their life.
Each person we help can be the key to ending the cycle of poverty, homelessness and despair for a whole family.
You can partner with The Paris Foundation in many ways: volunteer, mentor, prayer partner, food or clothing donation, or a financial donation. We accept no government funds and we use the EFCA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) standards as our own.
The Starfish Project was created by Dale Collins, who is a member of E.P.C. This organization assists our church members and friends with multiple tasks such as yardwork, assisting with transportation to doctor visits, small home repairs and more. Assistance through Starfish is completely anonymous, and can be obtained by contacting Dale Collins. If you would like to contribute to this fund, please see Dale for more information.
