Each year we find ourselves faced with another homeless family in crisis. 2014 we were able to get a family of five on their feet and in a 12 month housing assistance program through Arundel House of Hope. In 2015 we worked with a family of 8 living in a van off Wilkens Ave. With kind donations we were able to get the family into a hotel for 6 weeks over the holidays.
We are so blessed to now have Moniquika Sutton as a case manager for UEmpower of Maryland working specifically to provide housing for homeless families in the South West neighborhood we serve. We celebrate in 2017 as our 3rd homeless family is being blessed with a permanent address.
With the Family Relief Fund we are able to reach out and help in these emergency situations. Our goal is to help bridge the gap and guide the families in the proper steps to gain housing.
