OUR PROGRAMS

BREAKING BARRIERS TO EDUCATION, HOUSING, HEALTH, AND EMPLOYMENT

Our programs promote equity, create opportunity, and improve lives and communities. We take on the toughest challenges facing our neighbors and the neighborhoods they call home. Our programs increase access to basic needs: housing, health, employment, and education.

DEEP ROOTS, LOCAL STRENGTH

In each of the regions we serve—Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, and Howard counties, and Baltimore City—there are people struggling to afford basic needs. For almost 100 years, we’ve worked tirelessly to improve their lives and communities--it’s what we do.
