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.

A Night For The Network

A Night For The Network directly supports Baltimore County students at 15 network schools. Join us on October 7 to celebrate our accomplishments and raise critical funds to enable our work.

Backpack and Reusable Water Bottle Drive

Summer is flying by and we’ll be back to school before we know it!  So it’s time for the Network to collect the most-needed items to get our students in need ready for another great school year! This year we need good quality backpacks and reusable water bottles.

The Student Support Network provides food, basic necessities, and advocacy to support the well-being of Baltimore County Public School students in need.

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.


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.
