In August 2005, private philanthropic partners including the Abell Foundation, the Baltimore Community Foundation and the Annie E. Casey Foundation, along with the Maryland State Departments of Budget and Management, Human Resources and the Governor’s Office of Children, joined with the private nonprofits Safe and Sound Campaign and the Family League of Baltimore City to create the Family Recovery Program (FRP) – Maryland’s first Opportunity Compact.
The Family Recovery Program continues to work in partnership with the Safe and Sound Campaign and the Family League, along with Dayspring Programs, HealthCare Access Maryland, Hope Health Systems and Diakon Kathryn’s Kloset to deliver services.
FRP is a member of Maryland Nonprofits:
Maryland Opportunity Compact
What makes FRP special is that we are the first program under the Maryland Opportunity Compact. The Maryland Opportunity Compact is a policy and financing innovation designed to improve lives and free up public resources for reinvestment in families and communities. The Compact leverages up-front investments of private sector resources to seed effective strategies that improve lives – strategies such as drug treatment, case management and jobs. These investments reduce the need for deep end public expenditures on foster care, juvenile detention and prison – and save government money as a result. As savings are documented, they are shared between the effort that created them and the state – further expanding opportunity and improving the lives of more Marylanders.
