Our Family Navigator provides support for HCAS families most in need and helps to “navigate” them to appropriate services – food, shelter, utilities, medical assistance, insurance, disability services, and more– as part of our annual Community Service Partnership (CSP) Grant through the Howard County Department of Community Resources and Services. If you or your family are in need of services, please contact the HCAS office at 410-290-3466 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
HCAS offers emergency funds to those in greatest need through its Madhu Thibaudeau Emergency Fund. Click the link above to access the application.
