Mr. Reed Hutner grew up in the New York City area and came to Baltimore in 1966 when he was sent here by AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America). He became a Maryland Resident in 1969 and has lived in Baltimore for many years.
In the early 1970’s, Reed was a member of the New Democratic Club (NDC) and that’s when he was first introduced to Vinnie Quayle, founder and former Executive Director of St. Ambrose. When St. Ambrose first started publishing a newsletter, Reed was even more impressed by St. Ambrose’s significant impact throughout the community.
“St. Ambrose is right there. They’re not just talking about it, they’re doing something. They’re creating opportunities everyday to ensure that they are doing everything they can to help low income families have access to affordable housing.”
As a former political activist and teacher, Reed appreciates the importance of supporting organizations like St. Ambrose that are on the front lines of the affordable housing fight.
“In this time of great financial need, we must absolutely continue to support St. Ambrose, whether it’s annually or monthly. They will always be there for low income families and there is still a great need for St. Ambrose’s mission.”
