Making A Difference

Since 1981, the Religious Coalition for Emergency Human Needs has been providing Frederick County residents neighbors in need with emergency shelter and emergency financial assistance for homeless prevention, healthcare and food.

The Religious Coalition is the leading provider of emergency shelter for homeless adults and families and the point of entry for homeless prevention in Frederick County. We are the leading provider of emergency financial assistance outside of the local government.

 The Coalition partners with the community in conducting food drives, encouraging volunteerism and advocate for support for those in need of shelter, food and healthcare. Please join us in making a difference in Frederick County.
