A huge thank you to Prologis!! This donation came at just the right time and we are beyond grateful! We have been rationing the toilet paper we have and today they delivered 864 rolls and 52 gallons of hand soap. 🧻🧻🧴‼️

We have enough to hand out a bag of TP to ALL of our clients and that is such a great feeling. Thank you again!

Participants will learn how to market their skill set to employers, how to express who they are as a professional through the application and resume stages of job seeking, and have the opportunity to ask their job search questions to a team of workforce professionals.

All participants will be paired with a Job Placement professional following the presentation who will continue to provide ongoing 1:1 support to help build an employment plan, put these techniques to work, and get placed in that job!

We put out a call and Harford County answered - in a BIG way!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped us secure enough masks for each of our clients to have one- kids included!!
We are beyond grateful for the generosity of our friends!

A special thank you to Jean Tate and Joe Norman from The Norman Home Team of Keller Williams Gateway! Together they donated 50 masks! Jean made them all in one day!

We are still accepting masks. We would love to be able to provide everyone with 2 masks and to have a few extras in case we have a new family move in. Please contact [email protected] for more info.

Thank you Harford County!! #wecouldntdothiswithoutyou

The perfect at home, family volunteer project to benefit one of our sister programs--

We are also working with the Volunteen Leo Club and Chesapeake Synchronized Skating to reach more families and spread the word! Please feel free to share this with your sports clubs, schools, work places, scout troops...

Please help us spread some light and love to our friends at My Sister's Place Women's Center.

Their traditional meal service is looking a little different right now. Currently the staff is preparing grab & go meals for their clients.

Create index sized cards to be placed in the daily meal bags. Each card should have an inspirational note, quote or picture 😊 (No last names please)

Please contact [email protected] for more details.

Please mail the cards to Anna’s House by 4/29 and we’ll take care of getting them downtown.

Today is the day we were supposed to be celebrating our 28th Annual Breakfast. This event is something we look forward to all year! With much sadness we had to cancel this years event.

There are some very generous sponsors who stuck with us! We are grateful for their support now more than ever!

We are in awe at the kindness of our community! The generosity of these business and individuals will help us continue to serve our most vulnerable neighbors in the county.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! 💙💚

"Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.” – Sherry Anderson

April is Volunteer Appreciation month!! 👏

We appreciate all that our volunteers do for us! We are forever grateful for the selfless service they provide to our program.

While we are not currently able to have on site volunteers, there are still amazing humans working behind the scenes for us ‼️Shopping for and delivering supplies and food, making masks, sending gift cards! For all of these and so much more we are thankful ❤️!

We are looking forward to the day we can open up the doors back up to our amazing volunteers!

PROVIDING HOPE FOR A BETTER LIFE.

Opened in 1991, Anna’s House represents the combined efforts of Catholic Charities, Harford County Government and committed churches, businesses, civic groups and individuals throughout the county. Since its inception, Anna’s House has grown from one house encompassing four transitional living spaces to the broad array of homeless services it provides today including emergency shelter, transitional housing for families fleeing domestic violence, permanent supportive housing and rapid re-housing.
