As the barriers placed before many of our Frederick County neighbors during the COVID-19 pandemic continue to shrink, our most vulnerable households are faced with a different story. For our neighbors in need, the barriers to financial stability have only grown. Throughout the pandemic, many working families were forced to visit food pantries for the first time, forgo vital healthcare appointments, or find alternative child care just to keep their household afloat. We recognize the toll these barriers have taken on our ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households, those who struggle to afford a basic cost of living.
United to serve our neighbors in need
