5 people are interested
County Social Services boards provide valuable public services which help prevent homelessness and improve self-sufficiency for vulnerable individuals and families. These efforts are consistent with the work of local Department of Social Services.
Such Boards assist in providing additional services not already available through the mandated programs funded by government funds including such things as:
Medical supplies and services to help the elderly remain in their homes;
Summer camps, school clothing and supplies for low-income children; and
Parenting, education and job placement services to help families thrive
These Advisory boards provide services to thousands of Marylanders each year, thanks to the support of generous businesses and individuals who regularly donate funds and attend fundraising events.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

We will aggressively pursue opportunities to assist people in economic need, provide prevention services, and protect vulnerable children and adults. Our Mission is based on the following principles: Work is indispensable for achieving independence. Partnerships and alliances with business and the community are critical to our customers’ ability to achieve and maintain independence. Families should be the first resource for the emotional and financial support of their children and other family members. Assistance is provided to people while honoring individual and group differences. Empowerment is essential to the provision of human services.
