Back to School

Our kids had a great start to the new school year with a Back to School picnic at Argyle Park in Silver Spring. They enjoyed hot dogs and hamburgers lovingly grilled by HHY CEO, Chloe Perez. Kevin Beverly and several volunteers from Social & Scientific Systems delivered backpacks stuffed with school supplies for the 17th year in a row. We’re once again thankful to them for equipping our youth with everything they need for a successful school year!

Many Thanks to Bob’s Discount Furniture!

It was an exciting day when the Bob’s Discount Furniture truck pulled into 4 of our homes! The friendly, efficient team from Bob’s delivered $10,000 worth of donated furniture  including 2 sofas, 16 dressers, 8 beds and 2 dining room sets  with their incredible White-Glove Service. This is the second time Bob’s has been good to our youth, and we’re thankful for their incredible generosity!

Looking Good!

The young men in our group homes were treated to free haircuts at the Precision Barber Lounge in Laurel. Sending a big thank you to Teon and Sherry Nicholson for donating their services! Visit The Precision Barber Lounge in Laurel for your next haircut.


A young woman at our at Mary’s Mount Home came into the program determined to be successful.  She has proven to be resilient in many areas of her life and continues to overcome obstacles to achieve her goals. Recently this youth tried-out for her high school soccer team and was immediately accepted with a promise to be moved to the Varsity squad. Not only is the youth shining on the soccer field, but she’s shining in other areas of her life as she is a positive role model within the milieu and in the school setting. The team at Mary’s Mount is excited to see this youth flourish and rise to her full capabilities on the field, in the classroom, and within the program.
