Please mark your calendars for May 3, 2018 as 400+ elected officials, business and community leaders gather at our annual gala to support our vision for a community where everyone has a safe, stable and affordable place to call home.


Our 2018 gala theme “Celebrating First Responders” was chosen to recognize the critical role of Montgomery County’s emergency responders in addressing homelessness in our community. Police officers, fire fighters, and paramedics are frequently the first to respond when an individual experiencing homelessness is in crisis. The services provided by these unsung heroes are often the first step in an individual’s path to ending their homelessness and building a brighter future. 
 The following people will be present to accept MCCH's 2018 Distinguished Service Award on behalf of all first responders:
 • Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger
• Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Chief Scott Goldstein
• Rockville Acting Police Chief Bob Rappoport
• Gaithersburg Police Chief Mark Sroka
• Takoma Park Police Chief Antonio B. DeVaul
• Chevy Chase Police Chief John Fitzgerald

2018 Making a Difference Award

Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless is honored to be recognized as the Large Nonprofit recipient of this award by the Nonprofit Village.
