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.

    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).
