Mission of Love Charities, Inc. (MOLC) helps individuals and families stretch their limited incomes by providing donated furniture, clothing and household amenities. During intake, MOLC assesses client needs and makes necessary referrals to resources in the community.
Each year, MOLC also seeks donations of school supplies and backpacks, which are given to youth in need during the annual Back-to-School Community Event.
During Thanksgiving and Christmas, MOLC solicits food and toys to make the holidays special for those in need.
At its Day Center the organization offers individuals living on the streets a mailing address for official documents, showers, laundry services, charging stations for cell phones, food as well as access to computers in order to apply for services or to look for jobs.
Our organization also partners with the Department of Social Services to do outreach in Prince George's County to help individuals experiencing homelessness access needed resources and services.
Utility, Rental and Security Deposit Assistance
MOLC offers utility, rental and security deposits assistance to homeless and low income individuals and families. Under this program MOLC offers crisis assistance to prevent eviction and homelessness. Each case is reviewed and help is assessed based on need and the severity of the case. MOLC also works very closely with the Department of Social Services helping individuals complete applications for their Energy Assistance Program.
MOLC opened its new food pantry on July 5, 2017 and hopes to serve at least 1,200 individuals and families in need. MOLC's pantry is open six days a week and provides free food for homeless and low income individuals below 150% of the federal poverty guideline.
