County Executive John Leopold established the annual Homeless Resource Day (2015 is the eighth year) to provide a one-day, one-stop opportunity for homeless individuals to access health, housing and other social service resources. Thousands of homeless citizens have received assistance at these events over the years. As county executive, John Leopold created a Clergy Advisory Committee to help him identify the safety-net priorities for the county. As a result of the work of this committee, Leopold identified three funding priorities -- hunger, homelessness and domestic violence -- all of which received budgetary priority in the county executive's annual operating budgets. Leopold budgeted additional funding for police training in domestic violence cases. In 2014, Leopold was selected to be a member of the Board of Directors of the Anne Arundel County Food and Resource Bank. In November, 2008 Mr. Leopold received the Innovation Award from the Anne Arundel County Volunteer Center for the establishment of Homeless Resource Day.
