Serving out of love, faith, & community.
To serve God by providing professional and volunteer-driven family stability services and by building strong networks that support children’s safety and physical, mental, social, and spiritual growth.
Founded in 1920 by Baptist layman and spice entrepreneur, Willoughby McCormick, we’ve been giving a new start to at-risk kids at families for nearly a century!
Headquartered in Columbia, Maryland, we work with the state, churches, and other community organizations to ensure that our vision becomes a reality. We provide services throughout central Maryland.
KIDS & PARENTS
Over the year’s we’ve served over 20,000 kids in families and communities, versus institutional settings, confident that God established the family as the best place for children to grow and develop.
