Mr. Reed Hutner: Donor and Activist
Mr. Reed Hutner grew up in the New York City area and came to Baltimore in 1966 when he was sent here as an 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.”
