How you can HELP the Homeless During COVID-19 Pandemic!
Neighbor Network is working to support the homeless population of Howard County during this COVID-19 pandemic. The directive to “shelter in place” is difficult when you don’t have a shelter to stay in. Many are living in tent cities or sleeping in their vehicles here in Howard County. Now more than ever it’s important for this population to stay clean and healthy.
If you are able to provide any of the following IMMEDIATE needs, please drop off items at:
Howard County Multiservice Center
9900 Washington Blvd Laurel, MD 20707
Collection boxes can be found outside their door, as the office is closed to the public.
Individual drinks. Individual bottled water, liters or half gallon juice, tea, lemonade, etc. Also, individual flavoring packets for water.Individual drinks. Individual bottled water, liters or half gallon juice, tea, lemonade, etc. Also, individual flavoring packets for wate

Breakfast bars/Protein Bars
Single serving bowls (Chef Boyardee , cup of noodles, mac & cheese, etc)

Dinty Moore products or other products (single serving meal in bowl)
Cheese or peanut butter crackers
Also needed are cleaned containers with lids that can be thrown away (sour cream containers, butter containers, spaghetti sauce jars, mason jars, etc) to hold soups made by volunteers.
The morale is low and it is our hope we can help to boost their spirits by giving them homemade cards (You’re important, Stay Well, Thinking of you, etc.), as well as provide sweet treats (homemade or store bought). If you have children who love to draw/color, we would love them to help us spread good cheer to these folks!

Poverty Speaker Series
This program shines a light on the issue of poverty and homelessness and promotes a discussion between students and individuals who have directly experienced these issues. A panel of speakers share their stories, providing an opportunity for students to get a glimpse into the lives of someone who has experienced homelessness. The opportunity to meet and ask questions of these individuals has made a tremendous impact on the students.
"Our mission is to network with the community in bringing resources to those in need and bring awareness of the issue of poverty to the community through education and volunteer opportunities"
