Community Services Programs
SHABACH! Emergency Resources and Empowerment Center
Over the past 15 years, the SHABACH! Emergency Empowerment Center founding values have not changed. Our values have evolved to meet current community challenges. We believe that every family, regardless of socio-economic status, experiences risk factors that limit their capacity to meet individual and societal expectations. During our nation’s worst economic downturn in recent history, we have experienced the greatest influx of clients in need.
To meet our community’s needs the SHABACH! Emergency Empowerment Center offers emergency food, household items, clothing assistance to children, families and individuals. In 2010, with the vital support of volunteers, donors and community partners the Empowerment Center provided services for over 8,000 households and gave over 24,500 bags of groceries to those in need.
The SHABACH! Emergency Empowerment Center also provides Technical Assistance in Emergency Service Program Development to area community agencies, churches and family shelter programs throughout Prince George’s County, MD, and the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area.
Hours of Operation: 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Monday – Friday; 2nd & 4th Saturday. (By Appointment Only)

The SHABACH! Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP)
With today’s increasing pressures on youth, as well as new demands in the workplace, SCS has developed an innovative program approach to address the needs of both youth and the business community. SYEP has successfully built collaborative partnerships with the business community to provide young people with an opportunity for workplace skills development that can lead to positive career choices and perhaps make the difference between incontestable self-development and youthful crime.
To meet the economic challenges facing youth, SYEP employment partnership provides youth with direct summer jobs and year-round job placements. The program collaborates with business professionals and volunteers to provide young people with workplace skills training through a variety of workshops designed to give teens the basic skills needed to begin a successful employment track record.
