We also offer independent living and recovery maintenance through our transitional housing, outpatient and after-care services.

Mission Food Program

For those experiencing food insecurity, the Mission Food Program provides community outreach services and a food pantry for individuals and families in need of hunger relief. As a distribution partner of the Maryland Food Bank, and the largest food redistribution organization in Carroll County, we provide hunger relief through our distribution network and community outreach services in partnership with dozens of area agencies and charities.
