About The Coordinating Center

The mission of The Coordinating Center is to partner with people of all ages and abilities and those who support them in the community to achieve their aspirations for independence, health and meaningful community life.

Since 1983, The Coordinating Center has helped thousands of children and adults with disabilities and complex medical needs across Maryland access critical services (e.g., housing, mental health, nutrition, transportation) to:

  • improve their quality of life;
  • overcome barriers to care; and, 
  • live fulfilling lives in the community.

Our Impact

“Without the Family Resource Fund, I am not sure when my son would have gotten the dental treatment he needed.  I have been unable to work for a while and barely making it with the money I receive. So, I am extremely grateful." - Elizabeth

“Thank you for all your help. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have been able to get my medication. I would be in a hospital, nursing home or worse.” – Colleen

“Thank you so much for funding the transit system on Alex’s wheelchair. Without this, Alex would not be able to do his two favorite things—ride the bus and go to school. We thank you.” – Alex’s Family

“We would love to thank you for our beautiful new Hoyer lift. We cannot thank you enough for your thoughtfulness. It’s such a blessing to us.” – Alexus
