This holiday help us continue to serve over 10,000 families. Each of our Programs holds a special place in our heart:
Loss of a job, a serious illness or a housing crisis can throw a household into turmoil. Empowerment Services helps families in crisis put their lives back together again. We are the one-stop source for help on housing, financial or other needs that disrupt independent living. HUD Certified Counselors help set goals and budgets, prevent foreclosures and evictions, repair credit, or plan for a first home purchase -- whatever it takes to empower clients to take control of the pieces and move forward with confidence.
Utility bills can be the tipping point for families, seniors, or those with disabilities living at minimum or fixed income levels. To keep homes warm, safe and stable, Energy Assistance helps families pay bills, prevent shut offs, and establish plans to pay future bills. We go the extra step to look beyond today’s energy crisis to help prevent other problems tomorrow, so families stay on a self-sufficient path.
We believe that all kids can succeed. But successful development gets sidetracked when kids become distracted with problems at home, in school, or on the street. The Annapolis Youth Services Bureau helps kids and their families tackle problems before they escalate so they can refocus on healthy living and learning. And Green Summer Works offers special opportunities to develop important skills, explore career and college, and prepare for the workforce through paying summer jobs.
All children deserve a great START in a nurturing, safe environment to complete essential steps for healthy development. Low wealth parents cannot always provide those conditions, and those with special needs children face extra challenges. They depend on our Children’s Services centers for the foundation their children cannot get anywhere else. From birth through preschool to after school, our Early Head Start, Head Start and Extended Care programs give parents the peace of mind they need to know their children are safe, healthy, and ready to learn.
