Calvert Hospice. Hospice believes that each of us matters to the very last day of our lives. The quality of those last days can be enhanced with compassionate medical management and multidisciplinary support.

Community Ministry of Calvert

CIC has organized this program to fill the gap in services for those in the community who need financial assistance.  The success of this project depends on both volunteers and financial support.  Our mission is provide assistance to those in need in emergency situations either directly or in cooperation with other agencies.  This effort grows out of a belief in the basic dignity of all.  We believe that all who live in a society are connected to one another by our common humanity. We recognize that for some, difficult or even insurmountable barriers stand in the way of this simple goal of a decent life.  We believe, as stewards of God's abundant creation, we have a shared responsibility to reach out to assist others in distress, sharing from that bounty.

Community Mediation Center of Calvert   

Mediation is an opportunity to manage conflicts differently. With the help of mediators, you can discuss issues and talk about your concerns. In mediation, you — not the mediator — control the decisions and the outcome. Mediation is convenient and free. You make your own decisions about how to deal with the conflict. Solutions that you arrive at will be far more satisfying and lasting than anything imposed upon you by others. Eighty-five percent of people who have used mediation feel that they have improved their situation.
