Emergency Family Shelter Program Needs YOU!
Kol Ami along with ERUCC and UUCF host the Frederick’s homeless through the Religious Coalition’s (RC) Family Emergency Shelter project a few times a year. This is our opportunity to join this Interfaith effort to provide homeless families with a desperately needed helping hand.
