The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) serves as a resource to the community for citizens and their animals in need. In addition to providing individuals and families the opportunity to adopt a loving companion animal that is spayed or neutered and vaccinated at BARCS, the shelter’s other services include: providing housing and lifesaving care to homeless animals, public education and outreach, tracking lost and found pets, the Trap, Neuter and Return (TRN) of community cats, offering low cost vaccinations and microchip clinics, pet licensing, and providing low cost basic dog training classes. Visit BARCS’ website.

 

The Pro Bono Counseling Project (PBCP) assures that Maryland families, couples and individuals requesting mental health care are linked with licensed mental health professionals who provide care on a volunteer basis at no cost. Over the last 22 years as fewer public services are accessible, the Pro Bono Counseling Project assisted more than 24,000 families and individuals throughout Maryland by linking them with 1,695 licensed clinical social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, marriage and family therapists and professional counselors who have donated in excess of 88,000 hours of therapy for their care. Visit The Pro Bono Counseling Project’s website.

 

Housing Unlimited provides affordable, permanent housing for low-income individuals with psychiatric disabilities. They focus on promoting independence and recovery by providing a stable and comfortable home. With the security of knowing that their housing is secure, Housing Unlimited’s tenants can focus on becoming valued and integrated members of the community. Visit Housing Unlimited’s website.

 

Seeking Equality, Empowerment and Community (SEEC), an innovative nonprofit located in Silver Spring, provides individualized, community-based support to more than 200 people with developmental disabilities to help them live lives of their choosing. SEEC’s mission is “to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to direct their lives with dignity, choice, authority and responsibility.” Their driving force is to help people to live where and with whom they choose, benefit from work that is valued, develop through continuous learning, and thrive in communities of family and friends.
