We Provide College Scholarships to the Children of Maryland's Injured Workers
Every year, thousands of workers are disabled by on-the-job injuries. Tragically, on average, about 60 workers in Maryland lose their lives every year. It’s the families and, in particular, the children who are many times forgotten when these losses occur. Kids’ Chance of Maryland provides an opportunity for these children to pursue their education, reach their goals, and fulfill their dreams for the future. We're part of a national organization; visit Kids' Chance of America here.

National Kids' Chance Awareness Week a Success in Maryland
National Kids' Chance Awareness Week, Nov. 2-6, 2015, was launched in Maryland on Monday, Nov. 2 with an early morning "Manic Monday" appearance on local TV!
Every Monday morning, the local Baltimore TV station WJZ-TV, Channel 13, invites local charitable groups to tell their story and sing the 1980's classic Bangles' tune, "Manic Monday," with some customized lyrics.
It was a beautiful fall morning down by the Baltimore harbor for the more than 30 Kids' Chance supporters who turned out. Special thanks to Rona Finkelstein, Kids' Chance of Maryland Secretary, for securing the group's TV appearance and coordinating rehearsal efforts!
In the photo above, Kids' Chance of Maryland President Tom Phelan explains to WJZ's Ron Matz that Nov. 2-6, 2015 was proclaimed Kids' Chance Awareness Week in Maryland as well by Governor Larry Hogan.
