Citizens can also find a host of resource assistance and information at OurCalvert.org. From food or financial assistance to crisis, transportation and housing, OurCalvert.org is a hub of resource information.
“During the school year, families rely on schools to provide nutritious food to their children, but this becomes more challenging when school is out for the summer,” said Community Resources Director Jennifer Moreland. “We want to remind the public that there are local food assistance programs and other resources available at their fingertips on OurCalvert.org. For any challenges you may be facing, there is help. OurCalvert.org has a list of 16 service categories, organized so citizens can find the information they need.”
