Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Partners In Care Maryland (PIC) is a 50l(c)3 community nonprofit helping older adults remain independent in their own homes and engaged in the community. We operate using an innovative time/service exchange model with values of reciprocity, social capital, and equality infused into the culture of the program. We engage people to use their time and talents to help themselves and each other with the myriad tasks of everyday living. Most people want to stay in the homes and communities they know and love. We help make this possible by providing transportation and handyman services, member care, advocacy, and social programs to support healthy, independent, active living. We are celebrating our 25th Anniversary in Anne Arundel County this year. We always welcome new members and hope you will visit our website, and come to an orientation program to see how you might like to get involved. If you 're looking for something creative and interesting to do, or if you need services, give us a call. Join us. Become part of the PIC family.

I love Partners in Care. I work in their retail store to alleviate depression. I've met new people and made new friends all while helping a meaningful organization. I thought I'd never use their services, but I fell last year and needed a ride to a meeting. They sent someone to pick me up at home. She drove me to the meeting then drove me home afterward. She was a truly interesting person and I'm glad I met her. This is a fun organization to work for. They enjoy themselves while doing important work. I'm glad I found Partners in Care!

I've been involved with Partners In Care for almost 20 years. The difference they make in the lives of seniors is immeasurable. We get so many thank yous (verbally and by cards and letters) about how good our volunteers make someone feel as they get them back and forth to their doctor's appointments or the grocery store. I love being a part of this organization.

What a great concept of neighbors helping neighbors. The heart of all the volunteers and staff members is amazing. In a world of "selfies", we see the exception at Partners In Care. Volunteers give of their time and staff members give beyond their job descriptions to make sure members are taken care of. Truly a blessing!

This is a time exchange volunteer organization that helps the elderly stay connected, keep their dignity and give back. If you have an elderly family member or friend who needs assistance, a ride to the doctor or a social event, connect with the greatest organization any community would be honored to be associated with. Give and get back. The Best People support the Best members!
