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.
We have moved out of our storage space at Goucher College to a larger space in Timonium. Thanks to a partnership with Sheppard Pratt, we will use this space rent-free! We are grateful for this collaboration which also includes a Network program in two schools where Sheppard Pratt assists students previously enrolled in BCPS, with the ultimate goal of them returning to the public school system.
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.
