State and Community Resources
School closures have left many without access to childcare and food. Here are state and community resources to help you locate child care and emergency meals for students and children.

All child care programs are now closed except for programs established by the State of Maryland to serve only designated essential personnel. For the most up-to-date list of MSDE’s Approved Emergency Personnel Child Care go here.
