Welcome to HELP


HELP Association, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization based in Owings, MD that supports other non-profit organizations in the Calvert County community.

HELP currently has over 40 volunteers and an unpaid five-member executive board, elected by their fellow volunteers.


HELPing the Community

HELP's Thrift Shop in Owings raises money through the sales of donated items from the community.  That profit is circulated back to other non-profit organizations in the Calvert County community. Some of the organizations we’ve supported are the County Senior Centers, Volunteer Fire Departments and Rescue Squads, the Public Schools, Libraries, and sporting organizations.

HELP also contributes to these organizations both through monetary grants and material donations. HELP provides clothing, household items, small furniture and other items which our supported non-profits pass on to individuals and families in need.

The Help Association, Inc. is also on Facebook.
