PoP Pantries provides families with immediately accessible emergency relief, particularly in cases in which families are without food or hygiene items. Typically pantries are filled food items for breakfast and dinner and hygiene supplies like soap, toothpaste, feminine hygiene items and more. This program is best for families that are facing a minor emergency that does not happen often, and is unlikely to happen again in the near future.

Families Matter provides families with rapid-response, direct-delivery support by providing families facing an emergency not generally covered by existing emergency assistance programs (we generally do not assist with BGE turn-off notices & eviction notices) by providing families with household necessities for 1-2 months as well as a resource packet to offset the household needs and allow families to reallocate funds to address the emergency at hand.
Family Academy assists families in transitioning from temporary instability to last independence. The program focuses on family stability and financial literacy. Over a 12 month period, families participate in 3 program phases (Understanding personal finance & emergency savings, Professional and academy mobility and eliminating debt and Investing, Building Wealth & Increasing opportunities for youth), receive household necessities, savings matching and more.
