1 in 2 Baltimore County Public School students live in poverty.

They lack the basics that kids need to focus, learn, and thrive — and struggle to make the most of school.

You can set local students up for success.

Partner with the Student Support Network to bring them supplies, carefree school days, and the confidence to be their best.

The Student Support Network improves the lives of Baltimore County Public School students living in poverty by providing food, other basic necessities, and advocacy support.

Rooms of Support

We meet students where they are. Thirteen school-based Rooms of Support areas stocked with food, school supplies, clothing, and personal care products — all free to children who need them.

Advocacy

Aiming to create systemic change, we speak up for the needs of students living in poverty, whose voices tend to be heard the least. We advocate for change through policy, budget, and awareness.

Meeting Emergency Needs

Devastating emergencies — a fire, a global pandemic, death of a parent – happen,and we spring into action to help prevent further harm to children.

Winter is coming!

Help outfit students for cold weather — participate in our Coat Drive!

Back to School

Still in Need: our campaign to expand to twenty schools and continue meeting the urgent need that exists across Baltimore County.

Fundraising is more fun as a family!
