Congratulations To Our Nonprofit Of The Week
Harford Family House
About the Nonprofit:
From the Nonprofits’ website Who We Are – Harford Family House
Harford Family House has been providing housing, support and resources to families with children in Harford County who have been experiencing homelessness since 1989. Over the years, Harford Family House has helped more than 2,000 people in more than 700 families, thanks to dedicated board members, professional staff, volunteers, churches, civic agencies, donors, business leaders and others in our community.
Welcome One Emergency Shelter, previously operated by Faith Communities and Civic Agencies United (FCCAU), has been provide housing and hope to individuals in our community who are experiencing homelessness since 2006. Services include a safe space to sleep with clean linens, a locker, access to shower and laundry facilities, 3 meals a day and professional case management services to address whatever challenges each individual is facing.
Merger: Because both organizations have been providing similar services for many years, in 2021, the Board of Directors of the two organizations came together and decided that it made good sense to work together to end homelessness in our community. Both organizations were in strong financial positions and entered into the merger as equal partners. As of July 1, 2022, FCCAU merged with Harford Family House under the Harford Family House name and retaining the 501(c)(3) of Harford Family House. Because of this merger, Harford Family House will be able to serve anyone in our community experiencing homelessness, whether they are part of a family or on their own, old or young.
Mission: Harford Family House assists families and individuals achieve independence through housing, support and resources dedicated to improving the financial stability and mental well being of its clients experiencing homelessness.
Vision: Harford Family House is committed to building the start to finish solution to end homelessness in Harford County.
Values: Harford Family House fosters personal responsibility and dignity while providing resources and support. We cultivate a path to wholeness by:
- Showing Compassion
- Setting Structure
- Identifying and Developing Potential
- Strengthening the Individual and the Community
