SPAN Celebrates 25 Years of Helping Our Neighbors

Sparks-SPAN-Anniversary

SPAN’s friends and family gathered on the front lawn to celebrate the nonprofit’s 25th anniversary and ribbon cutting to officially open the new addition to the SPAN office. But they arrived with more than giant scissors and smiles; they brought memories accrued during 25 years of helping our neighbors.
SPAN opened its doors to help families through critical or emergency situations such as utility turn-offs, court-ordered evictions, prescription/medical needs and food. SPAN was formed because of the concern on the part of the ministers in the Severna Park area with regard to the growing demand for emergency help, the need to identify the people seeking help, and a process to help those people in a dignified and expeditious manner and although SPAN has expanded and grown over the years, we still remain dedicated to our mission:

To provide food and/or financial assistance to individuals and families to help them through a critical or emergency situation… and promoting and encouraging self-help efforts….

For twenty-five years, SPAN has continued to help our neighbors; but we haven’t done it alone. We had the help of our friends- through donations, fund raisers, sponsorships, and food drives. Because of you, WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE EVERYDAY; A DIFFERENCE TODAY THAT WILL LAST FOR MANY TOMORROWS

How We Help

How We Help

How SPAN Helps Eligibility Requirements On April 2, 1990, the Severna Park Assistance Network (SPAN) opened its doors to local area families in crisis. SPAN was formed because of the concern on the part of the ministers in the Severna Park area with regard to the growing demand for emergency help, the need to identify the people seeking help, and a process to help those people in a dignified and expeditious manner. Before that, those needing assistance would be forced to go from church to church. SPAN enabled them to find that same resource in one place. For over 25 years SPAN has been serving our neighbors to help them through a critical or emergency situation such as utility turn-offs, court-ordered evictions, and prescription/medical needs and food. SPAN’s primary service areas include: Severna Park, Millersville, Arnold and the Broadneck Peninsula. (Residents of SPAN’s … Read more...
