Hats Off to Hampden!

What a spectacular night! We can’t thank all of you enough! A special shoutout to all of our sponsors listed below, especially Libby of the Modest Florist for stepping up and creating magnificent centerpieces that reflected the magic of Hampden and name badges, the folks at The Wine Source for once again leading the way as a significant partner, for Brion McCarthy and his associate for photographing the event, Heather St. Clair for volunteering to mastermind logistics, Yong Taing for engineering a fantastic video presentation, and the volunteers from Art with a Heart for helping folks create their own hats and decorate masks. We also want to recognize the Family Center staff who worked long hours to make the event a success. And of course, we couldn’t have done it without the creativity and passion of event committee chairs Paul and Dorothy Wolman and the whole event committee. Our deepest gratitude for everyone who had a hand in making the night so fun, delicious, and supportive of the Family Center.

Our current regular hours of operation are Tuesday – Friday, 10am – 4pm. Please contact us at 410-467-8710 with any questions or if you need assistance. We are still here for you. Visit our COVID-19 page for additional resources.

Here for Hampden, Here for Good

For more than 25 years, the Center’s programs and services have been a lifeline for individuals and families in Hampden. The relationships we develop here instill purpose, confidence, and hope in one another — the building blocks of change and growth.
