Carroll County Homeless Resource Day is October 1st

The Carroll County Department of Social Services (DSS), along with its community partners and business leaders, will hold a Homeless Resource Day on October 1, 2011, at the County's Winters Mill High School. The County has invited everyone to be a part of this initiative to help eliminate homelessness. As the County's flyer says,"The goal of the Homeless Resource Day is to bring together resources in Carroll County to assist this population with services which may ultimately lead to housing, employment and self-sufficiency. The State of Maryland has seen much success with Homeless Resource Days in other counties. Due to the positive impact Homeless Resource Day has had in other counties the Governor and Department of Human Resources have already agreed to extend their support statewide. With your help, we can gather together to hold a successful event in our Community to educate and assist our homeless population. Please save the date and it is not too late to participate. We can use volunteers from your organization, donations of goods or services, or a monetary donation. We can also use help in spreading the word about this important event."
