Building community during the pandemic happens in many ways –generous cash and in-kind donations, kind words of appreciation –and funding from grants.
Langton Green, an award-winning nonprofit that provides residential supports and services to adults with developmental disabilities in Anne Arundel County, received a grant that provides immediate assistance during the COVID pandemic. This grant is funded by the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County’s (CFAAC) Community Crisis Response Fund.
Langton Green is using the funds to continue to provide high-quality, personalized support for each individual in its care during the pandemic.
“Access to protective equipment is essential for our caretakers and the individuals in their care,” says Langton Green’s executive director Kimberly Breton. “We are deeply appreciative to the Community Foundation for their support of some of the most vulnerable people in our county. Receiving this grant means we can provide much needed support and basic necessities to individuals in our care.”
