Impact Statement:

The most recent statistics are reported from the Maryland Department of Human Resources for Fiscal Year 2007 (July 1, 2006 – June 30, 2007) stating that a total of 1,440 adults and children were sheltered in Frederick County during the year representing 68,287 bed nights. A total of 805 individuals were not served primarily due to the lack of available beds.

Since 1988 Advocates for Homeless Families (AFHF) has provided Transitional Housing to homeless families who desire to achieve stable and independent living. The organization also, through its Families Forward Program, serves families who are at-risk of becoming homeless and supports them in maintaining their self-sustainability and improving their standard of living. Both programs provide families individualized case management and weekly Life Skills Workshops.

Annually AFHF provides housing and support services to an average of 90 – 100 adults and children representing 13,505 bed nights. AFHF family graduates, after one year of completing their program, have remained in stable housing and are either employed full-time and/or pursuing educational goals.

We are connectors of nonprofits in our community

More than 100 years ago, a group of people sat around a table (or at least that’s how we imagine it) because they wanted to bring local service agencies together and more effectively serve individuals and families in Frederick. 19 years later (in 1930) we inherited a building in the heart of downtown and today continue to use that structure to ensure the existence of a community safety net. We have observed the landscape of historical events and how they impact the system of human services and have developed programs to support their efforts. As a nonprofit center, we use our space as a bricks and mortar “home” for our fellow nonprofits where we help tell their stories, share their impact and build the kind of community where we all want to live.
