Need Help?

SPAN assists neighbors in need with utility turn-offs, court-ordered evictions, prescription/medical costs, and food.

 

Call first to verify your eligibility. Call 410-647-0889 Monday - Thursday, between 10:00am and 2:00pm.

Please note that your application for assistance can be processed more efficiently in person. If possible, come to SPAN for
assistance Monday - Thursday 10am-1:45pm.

Unable to come to SPAN in person during our hours of operation? If so, we are expanding our services to include virtual
services for clients who are unavailable on weekdays.

So, if you are unable to come in person, it's as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Call SPAN at 410-647-0889 during client hours (Monday - Thursday 10am - 1:45pm) to speak to a volunteer to begin
the process. It only takes a few minutes.

2. Our volunteers will explain what documentation will be needed to process your application. You may also be referred to
other organizations.

3. Scan or photograph all appropriate documents and email them to [email protected] That is all it takes!
