We all need to know that help is available to meet basic needs in times of personal crisis or disaster.  United Way of Calvert County (UWCC) helps to provide that peace of mind by funding programs that provide food, clothing, shelter, and disaster relief.  WCC awards Basic Needs Grants on an annual basis to local nonprofit organizations providing emergency shelter, food assistance, and help with rent/utilities to people in Calvert County.

These six nonprofit organizations will receive grants ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 to provide basic needs support services throughout 2017 to Calvert County residents in need.
