Hand-up not handouts…
Calvert Family Advocates’ programs are designed to help people “get ahead”… not get a handout. Being self-sufficient is their goal. Helping them get there is our mission!
Calvert Family Advocates believes every adult should have the tools and resources necessary to support themselves and their families. For those adults who are struggling to achieve self-sufficiency, Calvert Family Advocates provides of variety of financial support to help them help themselves. Calvert Family Advocates also recognizes that not everyone grows up in a loving and supportive family, and poor decisions can derail a young adult’s ability to be self-sufficient. Calvert Family Advocates supports programs that help young adults improve their job prospects through education. With the exception of the Childcare Grant and End Hunger culinary program, all assistance is provided in response to referrals from the Calvert County Department of Social Services (DSS).
Calvert Family Advocates supports DSS customers by:
• Funding the cost of education and materials necessary for job training or jobs.
• Funding transportation-related costs including driver’s education, cars and car repairs.
• Funding childcare expenses for students at the College of Southern Maryland.
Our programs have resulted in…
