At the Mission of Love Charities, we are very impressed
with how Tatiana Johnson has grown as a result of being involved in MOLC’s
youth program. She is often commended by instructors for her noticeable
poise and abilities. She is already a world traveler, has the ability to
speak Spanish, and recently won Homecoming Duchess for the 10th grade
class at Dr. Henry A Wise Jr. High School.
As a frequent participant in
MOLC workshops over the
last two years, we have
witnessed Tatiana speaking up, being willing to learn, and being
curious about every subject we teach. A lawyer who taught the Know Your
Legal Rights seminar, which provides real cases for students to
analyze, commented on Tatiana’s abilities and resourcefulness. He said
that she was actively engaged in the subject, passionate about bringing
the facts in the case studies, and volunteered to present her
In addition to her support of MOLC, she is active in
her church, singing in the choir, serving in the usher ministry and
helping with children.
She also volunteered with Maryland Park and
Planning this past summer at
an elementary school summer camp.
Tatiana is always respectful, helpful, a fast learner and needs little
We are proud that she is a member of our Youth Development
WHAT WE DO WHO WE ARE
Established in 1991, the Mission of Love Charities, Inc. (MOLC) is a
nonprofit multifaceted health and human services organization dedicated
to meeting the immediate basic human needs of the underprivileged and
impoverished throughout the region by providing free programs and
services designed for short-term stability. MOLC is committed to
addressing basic human needs by equipping individuals with the tools
needed for long-term stability and growth.
Based in Prince George's County, Maryland, as of June 30, 2010, the MOLC
has provided critically needed services to more than 306,743
underprivileged and impoverished individuals and families
throughout the Washington metropolitan region. In a single year, MOLC
assists an average 6000 first-time clients and 4000 repeat clients
receiving over 15,000 units of service. Most clients are adults ranging
in ages of 18 to 50 who live in and are homeless in Prince George's
County, and who support themselves and their family with an income of
under $22,000 per year. Many are women with children who are
unsupported and are transitioning from welfare to work. Approximately
70% come from Maryland, 25% for the District of Columbia, and 5% from
Northern Virginia. It is also important to note that 83% of our revenue
goes directly to service our clients, helping them become more
responsible and involved citizens.
Clients are typically referred by local agencies. However, individuals as well as parallel organizations are encouraged to contact MOLC directly for assessment of services. Call 301-333-4440 to sign up for a program or for more information.
WHAT WE DO
Through the development and operation of its
four core programs—Basic Needs, Life Skills, Youth Development,
and Seniors' Network—MOLC provides free services to its clients.
This program helps individuals and families stretch their limited income by providing for their basic needs such
as counseling and case management services, food/clothing/shelter/furniture and household amenities.
Donated items are given away FREE to MOLC Basic Needs Clients. These are key components of a program
designed to meet clients where they are. Based on one-on-one counseling and assessments, clients are
given referrals to community services for needs not covered by MOLC.
Helps individuals develop new personal and professional skills. Emphasizing training and case management,
participants attend classes and work with MOLC to develop an Individual Responsibility Plan,
that includes job search and career advancement strategies. Ultimately, our life skills program
is designed to help individuals enter the job market, secure higher paying jobs, and improve their lives.
After the completion of the Life-Skills Program students are accepted in to the Alumni Association.
The Alumni Association assists graduates in continued professional development, socialization,
networking, and peer support. The Alumni Association allows students to give back to the community
through MOLC & other organizations as well as give support and mentoring to current Life-Skills students.
Our Youth Development Program (YDP) is designed for 10-16 year olds, to teach character education, emotional intelligence,
getting results, healthy relationships, communication arts & cultural development. Our goals include preparing
“successful” youth, youth that are able to contribute to society, to think critically and develop productive
solutions to make their life and communities better. We want them to develop self-respect and see that there’s
more to life then just where you are, but where you’re going. We offer them seminars, workshops and trips that
emphasize that with knowledge comes power; add hard work and everything is possible.
This program is designed for seniors (age 60 and older) to provide opportunities to learn basic computer skills
and receive information on wellness, health screenings, assisted transportation, and other information on topics
of concern to seniors. Senior graduates are also accepted into MOLC Alumni Association.
THE RENEWED MIND PROGRAM (TRMP)
Substance Abuse/Compulsive Behavior Program
“A Spiritually based Outpatient Program”
TRMP is based on the
belief that a renewed mind translates into renewed behavior, thus, we operate
a program that is highly structured, psycho-education based, confidential,
spiritually based (not religious based), and it stresses admission, treatment,
recovery, aftercare, and relapse avoidance/prevention.
