With us, beside them & this community, behind them.

At Together We Own It, we strive to be the link between children and family services within our county, and to be at the forefront of a movement to ensure every child has a voice and an opportunity to use it.


When youth advance from Together We Own It’s programs, they are prepared to move into the workforce, enter institutions of higher education, and thrive as independent adults. To support this potential, we must build upon the strengths of current resources and directly confront where there are weaknesses. 

It is our vision to create a place for youth to be housed, have connection to critical resources that support independence, and feel valued right here in Carroll County.

 

Your investment in Together We Own It is an investment in our youth.
