President's Message

Michael E. Young, MSW - President/CEO

The Board and staff have continued to focus on the “Mission” of the agency by providing the services outlined in this year’s Annual Report. We applaud and thank the community, funders and stakeholders for support and resources that have contributed to another successful year. It is again a pleasure to share with you the results of a dedicated team. This report will reflect on the impact of Southern Maryland Tri-County Community Action Committee, Inc. (SMTCCAC) on the thousands of citizens whose lives we touched and improved.

SMTCCAC, Inc. will continue to implement new programs to combat the challenges of poverty evolved around issues of affordable and safe housing; education and school readiness for our children; care for our fragile/mentally & physically challenged seniors; training for job opportunities; community development; and financial resources for sustainability. As you review this report, I ask that you continue your partnership(s) with us and help develop strategies to expand and reach out to touch additional lives. The end result is sustainable long-term change that will deliver a better quality of life for citizens of Southern Maryland.

As a stronger Community Action Agency in 2018, we have preserved the Head Start Program and implemented Early Head Start, enabling our children to continue with the learning process. Our elderly and disabled continue to receive assistance with medical care and daily living and recreational tasks, and our Friendly Adult Care Facility has received a much- needed facelift, through collaboration with local partners to include, the United Way of Calvert County and two local non-profits (Calvert Family Advocates and Christmas in April). Through our successful partnerships, the agency has continued to excel and focus on “changing lives” and “changing communities”.
