 Thanksgiving Thank Yous

Our community is so grateful for the generosity and support for our little cluster of families.  We would like to give two special shout outs to:
  • The youth of the HDGHA community youth who came together and helped clean up fallen leaves all over the neighborhood while having fun together
  • The generous ladies of Lal Nas Court # 240 who donated 25 turkeys and all the Thanksgiving fixins' for those in our community who needed supplies for Thanksgiving. 
We SO appreciate these incredible acts of kindness!

Get Help with Heating Bills

The Maryland Energy Assistance Program (MEAP) provides financial assistance with home heating bills.  Payments are made directly to the fuel supplier and energy company on the customer’s behalf.

Renters, homeowners, residents of public housing, sub-metered homes (where you pay another company, not the utility directly), Roomers/ Boarders are all eligible for Energy Assistance grants. The most important factors in determining who is eligible for energy assistance are the size of your household and how much money you made in the last 30 days. 

Learn more and find out if you're eligible for the program here.

The CDC has authorized a 3rd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for some Americans, including those with a health condition that severely weakens their immune system such as:

  • Organ transplant recipients
  • Current treatment for blood and lymph cancers (leukemias and lymphomas) and most other types of cancers requiring chemotherapy
  • Stem cell transplant recipients
  • Advanced HIV infection
  • Active treatment with medications that weaken components of the immune system, including 20 or more milligrams/day of prednisone or comparable steroid medications, TNF blockers, and other medications that impair response of the immune system
  • Primary immunodeficiency diseases (e.g., DiGeorge, Wiskott-Aldrich syndromes)
  • Severe renal disease
Learn more about the booster on the Harford County Health Department website.
