Homeless Resource Day

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

Anne Arundel County’s Tenth Annual Homeless Resource Day is at Glen Burnie High School, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.  This is a “one-day, one stop” opportunity for individuals and families experiencing homelessness to access benefits, medical care, substance use resources and mental health counseling intake as well as a variety of social services which can ultimately lead to housing and self-sufficiency.
 

Why Participate as a volunteer?

The community’s support has been, and will continue to be, an important part of our effort to address the issues confronting homeless individuals and families.  Be a part of this initiative in the fight to eliminate homelessness! – one that’s been very successful in cities across the country.
