    I would like to thank Shepard Cove for taking me in 1996 of January 3rd. I have volunteered for the Homeless Resource in Glen Burnie Maryland for six years and I now reside in Texas beginning this year. I'm almost finished with my GED diploma, passed three subjects, have one more to go (math (. Thanks again).

UCAP's Shepherd's Cove is one of the largest shelters in Prince George's County, offering emergency housing and comprehensive social services for women and children. In 2006, the shelter served over 800 women and children. Happy Places = Happy Faces organizers chose to makeover this former elementary school to ensure that residents could live in a warm and inviting space that not only supported their efforts to become self sufficient, but also enhanced their sense of self worth.
