Families with income at or below the poverty level are everywhere. They are found not only in the inner city, but in Howard County as well. While Howard County is one of the wealthiest counties, there are residing within our county 5,000 families who are low income families and qualify for public assistance. These families may have problems paying their rent, water, or electricity and may not even have enough money to buy food for the children. For years, Resurrection Conference-St Vincent de Paul Society has built up a reputation of helping needy families who come to us for help. Our ability to help these families is well recognized in the community and it's a reputation we are honored to have, and will try to maintain so long as we have the financial support from parishioners of the Church of the Resurrection.
"In as much as you do it to the least of my brethren, you do it to me." (Matthew 25:40)
