Advocates for Homeless Families celebrates its 32nd year, providing emergency shelter and transitional housing to Frederick County homeless families with children.
Their mission is to achieve permanent solutions to homelessness by providing access to permanent housing, education, employment, life skills training, and intensive support services. They own and manage 12 properties to house the families in their care and serve up to 25 households per year. After one year in their program, the organization helps the families move into either public housing or fair market rental and continue supportive services for another year. The Rotary Club of Frederick’s Service Partnership Grant will help Advocates for Homeless Families to maintain the 12 properties and keep them clean, safe, and comfortable for homeless mothers and their children.
