Your Donation has a Powerful ImpactDonations help the Fuel Fund of Maryland keep people in their homes connected to life-sustaining energy. That energy takes many forms: natural gas, electricity, home heating oil, wood and propane—whatever it takes to keep people safe and secure in their homes in the icy winter and scorching summer.
The Fuel Fund of Maryland helps avoid homelessness, because nonpayment of energy bills is the number two reason people lose their homes. We promote safe homes, because without access to energy, families often try makeshift means to heat and light their houses, which oftentimes proves fatal. And we help children stay in school. The greatest tragedy of evictions caused by utility turnoffs is that children not only lose their homes, they also lose their schools, teachers, friends and neighborhood support systems.
