Merger: Because both organizations have been providing similar services for many years, in 2021, the Board of Directors of the two organizations came together and decided that it made good sense to work together to end homelessness in our community. Both organizations were in strong financial positions and entered into the merger as equal partners. As of July 1, 2022, FCCAU merged with Harford Family House under the Harford Family House name and retaining the 501(c)(3) of Harford Family House. Because of this merger, Harford Family House will be able to serve anyone in our community experiencing homelessness, whether they are part of a family or on their own, old or young.
