Calvert Family Advocates’ programs prevent homelessness by addressing the immediate critical needs of families. Calvert Family Advocates provides financial aid to families referred by Calvert County’s Department of Social Services (DSS) who are on the threshold of losing their homes.
Calvert Family Advocates supports DSS customers by:
• Paying rental and utilities arrearages to enable families to remain together and sheltered.
• Providing first month’s rent or security deposit to enable families to transition out of shelters and into permanent housing.
• Providing funds for emergencies which threaten families’ safety and well-being.
