How @The House Helps Its Community

Meet Our Founder
I am Pastor Troy D. Randall, and I am the single father of four beautiful children ages 13 to 24 years old. I have two Theological degrees, a bachelor’s in Human Services and a master’s in Social Work. In addition to being the Founder and CEO of @The House, Inc., I am Co-Chair of the Northwest Faith-Based Partnership, a board member of the Northwest Partnership, and President of the Cuthbert, Cordelia, Hayward and Beaufort Neighborhood Association.
We started @The House, Inc. in 2011 with the mission to support the Foster Care community. The need was so great for sharing resources that I expanded the services to be inclusive for all ages. Because various tasks in the neighborhood were going undone and unnoticed, I began to assist in food pantries and outreach programs in the Park Height’s community.
My passion is helping others in need and assisting them to achieve some sense of security. It is critical to obtain the necessary resources for this work during these times of trial, but I believe our breakthrough is on the horizon. Dedicating my life to the gifts of helps ministry affords me the opportunity to help touch and change lives for the better by exposing those willing participants to another way of obtaining their life goals.
I am operating in my calling and I do not regret the decision. My professor at Morgan State University told me to slow down in life and enjoy the path, for it is a disservice to hurry to the expected end to forfeit the journey and its lessons. For true power is knowledge learned from the bumps in life.

@The House — Beyond the Numbers
“@The House is a place of love and restoration where everything you need is under one roof.”
“@The House meets people exactly where they are and as they are — blanketing them with all the needs that society is falling short of providing.”
“It’s a one-stop shop, where people can get help to get a job, get food, pray, get a mask, and diapers for their children.”
“When a single parent comes in with children, wants a job, has no job, needs a resume. It’s almost indescribable that @The House can provide all of these things.”
