Federated Chartities provides strategic and “bricks and mortar” support to non-profit organizations in Frederick, Maryland. The Federated Charities Corporation of Frederick was established in 1911 to help support a growing number of charitable organizations being established in Frederick County. More than 100 years later, we continue to do so by offering affordable operational space to emerging and established non-profit organizations. Our fully renovated building consists of two connected 19th century structures and houses 7-10 charitable organizations at any given time. Our tenant-partners provide a diversity of support to our community in the fields of mental health care, legal assistance, and workforce development services in addition to sharing a love of Frederick’s historic downtown. By offering below-market rents, our non-profit tenants are able to better leverage their own financial resources, grow, and frequently move on to a larger, dedicated location of their own. Federated Charities also operates the Beverly A. Sharrer Medical Equipment Loan Closet, which loans home health care medical equipment to Frederick County residents on a temporary basis – thereby eliminating the additional costs associated with an injury or illness. Walkers, canes, crutches and other equipment can be borrowed by any Frederick County resident, regardless of their financial circumstances.

Downtown Resident Parking
With a valid residential permit you can park along your street, any day of the week, without further charge for up to 48 hours. However, you must still adhere to the restrictions for sweeping and trash pickup night, as posted for each street. There are two types of Residential Parking Permits: Metered and Non-Metered.
Residential Metered Parking Permits allow you to park along eligible streets (listed on parkfrederick.org). Non-Metered permits allow you to park along only those streets that are not controlled by parking meters. If there are meters on your block, you may apply for either type of permit. Learn more about parking in Downtown Frederick at parkfrederick.org.

Hear What it’s Like to Live in Downtown Frederick
Kids in the City: Susan and Jeremy Kelley
Like a lot of new parents, the birth of their first child meant it was time for Susan and Jeremy Kelley to trade their small starter home in on a bigger house. But the couple, who’d spent the past decade living in a turn of the century row house across Patrick Street from the fairgrounds and a few doors down from the house Patsy Cline once called home, didn’t head to the suburbs. Instead, they bought a three-story detached townhouse on E. Second Street. “We’d always wanted to be closer into downtown,” says Susan. And the fact that they had a toddler didn’t discourage them. “So many people feel like they need to disengage when they have kids and I felt like we need to engage more,” says Jeremy. Once a boarding house, the home is currently divided into three units. The largest apartment, which meanders over all three levels, is home to the couple and their two children – Jack and his little sister Jane, who was born after the move. “What I like about this house is that it’s a house we can grow into,” says Jeremy. But in the meantime, the home’s other two units house rental tenants and provide a welcome income […]
Downtown’s Millennial Migration: Erik Moore
After attending college in Pittsburg and working in financial services there, Frederick native Erik Moore didn’t immediately leap at the chance to return home and join the family business. “Pittsburg’s just bigger, so there was a little hesitation,” says Erik, the Financial Planning Services & Analysis Manager with Moore Wealth, Inc., a concierge wealth management firm with offices in Downtown Frederick. But Erik, who grew up in Spring Ridge, didn’t immediately rule out a homecoming, either. “I’ve never lived in Frederick as an adult and so there was a lot I hadn’t experienced before,” he says. A lot of those experiences are brand new, too. Frederick – especially downtown – isn’t quite the same place he knew as a teen. “There’s a lot of stuff coming to Frederick that’s appealing to people my age,” says Erik, “the new rooftop bar at Brewer’s Alley has been a real hit.” So, after a few trips home to sample the scene, Erik and his fiancé made the move from Pittsburgh to Frederick in November of 2016. And while he grew up in the suburbs, they decided to make downtown their new home. “The office is here, so that made it easy. Plus, for someone my age, the other areas aren’t as […]

The Frederick Department of Art will be opening its doors to the public for our Third Annual Open Studio! Come see demos by Caitlin Morris of Ms. Caitlin’s School of Blacksmithing, as well as Metalsmith and Maskmaker, Kest Schwartzman. Don’t miss this opportunity to peek into downtown’s only blacksmithing school, and pick up some gifts for the holidays. If you’re looking for a truly unique present for a local friend, Ms. Caitlin’s School will be selling gift certificates for classes, and if you need something more shippable, both smiths will have their handmade work for sale. For those not looking specifically to shop, there will be blacksmithing and coppersmithing demos throughout the day, as well as inevitable short dance parties, because that’s how these two do things. Kest Schwartzman has a BFA in metals from Massachusetts College of Art. Since then, as Vagabond Metalworks she has worked almost entirely with copper, learning to collaborate very closely with the metal. She combines old and new hammering techniques to create the visual softness of draped fabric in a material tough enough for everyday wear.

This journalistic icon gained international attention when he and Carl Bernstein broke the news of the Watergate scandal. The book they wrote, All the President’s Men, won a Pulitzer Prize. His current speaking tour delves into the state of the American Presidency. Woodward offers well-reported answers to questions about the Trump presidency, the Mueller investigation, North Korea, terrorism and the economy that audiences won’t learn from any other source. As he reported on previous presidents, for 46 years Woodward has immersed himself in their decision-making, scandals, wars, and economic policy like no other reporter. As a speaker, Woodward pulls the curtain back on Washington and its leaders to captivate audiences with stories that are sometimes surprising, at times shocking, and always fascinating. He blends stories that are both up to the minute and from the past (to provide historical context). Woodward speaks as he writes – crisp and concise – and helps people get behind the spin to understand what’s really going on in the halls of power in an age of 24-hour news, social media, and snarky politics.

A self-described “feral child who was raised in libraries,” Neil Gaiman devoured the works of authors like C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Edgar Allen Poe, and more at an early age. He began his writing career in England as a journalist then moved onto writing books and comics. His groundbreaking, award-winning series “Sandman” became the first comic ever to receive a literary award, the 1991 World Fantasy Award for Best Short Story. Gaiman writes books for readers of all ages, including picture books for young readers. His books are genre works that refuse to remain true to their genres like his award-winning gothic horror work “Coraline,” originally deemed too frightening for children. He has authored many New York Times bestsellers including “Nowhere,” “Smoke and Mirrors,” “Stardust,” “American Gods” and “Fragile Things.” “American Gods” has been released in an expanded tenth anniversary edition and there is an HBO series in the works. “The Graveyard Book” received numerous awards and made Gaiman the first author ever to win both the Newberry Medal and the Carnegie Medal with the same book. He wrote the screenplay for the original BBC TV series “Neverwhere,” “Mirrormask” and co-wrote the script to Robert Zemeckis’s “Beowulf.”
