Did you Know?

23% of the 116,903 households in Howard County fall under the ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed) threshold, according to United Way of Central Maryland. That’s 26,887 households!

These are our neighbors who are fully employed and just over the cliff of the federal poverty line ($26,000 for a family of four), meaning that they do not qualify for any social services, yet still cannot make ends meet. 

Because Columbia Community Care does not ask for proof of need or identification, our existence has been critical in addressing the urgent needs of the 26,887 households who fall under that ALICE threshold.

Each and every day we rely on generous donors like you to help us continue our work around food insecurity, poverty, and hunger. You help us address inequities in education, health, and access to opportunities, resources and services.

Donations are used to purchase food and resources that we provide at our sites, for our delivery service, and to expand our reach into our many programs and services
