Change is a non-profit charitable organization that has provided excellent person-centered programs and services to individuals with disabilities for over 50 years.
Change, Inc. was founded in 1954 as a Children's Program by a group of parents who realized a program was needed to care for the needs of their children with developmental disabilities.
Carroll Haven Center was incorporated in 1969 and increased their services to include adults as well as children.
In 1992 Change adopted its new name (Carroll Haven Achieving New Growth Experiences). What first started as a small program to address only a few children in Carroll County has now grown to servicing nearly 200 individuals in five counties. Change partners with families, caregivers, and advocates to provide excellent opportunities to all those we serve. We embrace evidence based, customized approaches to continuously improve person-centered outcomes.

Raise the Roof Appeal
We need your help....
Our Stoner Avenue facility is in dire need of a new roof. We are asking for your help to support an appeal to raise $30,000 to replace the roof!
The good news…..
We have secured a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for $90,000 through the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).
Why we need your help.....
The estimated cost to replace the roof is $120,000.
How you can help…..
To secure the grant, we need to raise $30,000 as our match. To do this, we are asking our families and friends for help. No contribution is too small.
The current roof is original, and nearly 30 years old. In the past few years we have had to make countless repairs for leaks. Since the health and well being of your family members and our staff is our top priority, we need to fix the roof before the leaks begin to adversely affect the mechanical & electrical systems as well as the infrastructure.
To contribute to our Raise the Roof Appeal, simply mail us your donation or donate securely online through the link above.
We thank you in advance for any support you can provide for our Raise
the Roof Appeal.
