Community & Power Project Family Resources
Staying Safe & Healthy
During this time, it is important to us that our students and families receive ongoing support, academically and otherwise. SFNC has set up a small fund for families to use in the event of an emergency. The distribution of funds will be decided by staff on a case by case basis.
If a Power Project parent or family member needs help during this time, they can let a staff member know during their check-in or contact our Parent Liaison Coordinator Everel Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our staff is committed to keeping open communication with all families throughout this period. Each of our staff members has been assigned four families to check-in with daily from Monday to Thursday. The goal of these calls is to make sure our families are OK, check-in on their child's learning at home, and provide additional resources and support as needed. Our staff is here to listen. Each family will recieve a check-in call every day. An initial call will be made to see what the best time to contact you is. Some families will receive daily calls from staff who are usually 'behind the scenes.” Visit

Are you concerned about the coronavirus and need health coverage? Have you lost your job or has your household income changed? You can enroll now in a health plan through Maryland Health Connection due to the COVID-19 crisis and may be eligible to receive financial help to help you pay for coverage. As part of the state’s overall response to the coronavirus, and in an effort to prioritize health and safety, Maryland Health Connection opened a new special enrollment period for uninsured Marylanders.
It is our goal that all students in the Power Project will use iReady online instruction for at least 1 hour per day so they can continue learning from home. Students will earn 1 PowerBuck (our incentive program: PowerBucks are used to purchase toys in our PowerBuck Store) per 15 minutes they log on iReady. There is no limit or cap to how many PowerBucks they can earn. We ask that parents/guardians monitor students while on iReady if possible. If your child is not able to complete iReady for any reason - trouble getting set up, lack of internet or need of a computer etc, please let staff know. We are here to help! To Log Into iReady:
Login ID: Your child’s firstnamelastname ex: ‘janedoe’
password: ‘summerfun’, ‘powerproject’, OR ‘123abc’

CHARMCare is a free online resource guide that you can use to search for free or reduced-cost programs and services in Baltimore City to help meet your needs.
