PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Dec. 13, 2022 – The Calvert County Family Network will host a kickoff reception to launch an Open Table initiative to build social support networks to help individuals and families in need.

The Open Table model reflects the human potential of every person. Through relationship building and accessing social networks, a group of volunteers empowers an individual or family with complex challenges to develop a plan and goals for the life they envision for themselves and their children. Volunteer “table members” meet regularly with the family or individual to support and help them implement their life plan. Table members tap into their social connections and knowledge of available community resources to support that plan.

Community members and interested volunteers are encouraged to attend the informational kickoff event on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2023, at 4 p.m., at the College of Southern Maryland, Prince Frederick Campus, at 115 J W Williams Road, Building B.

For more information or to become a volunteer, contact Calvert County’s Open Table Coordinator, Jessica Roberson, at or 410-535-1600, ext. 8809.

Calvert County Family Network is Calvert County’s Local Management Board (LMB). LMBs partner with local leaders, public and private agencies, and businesses to build communities where all children, youth and families can thrive.
