The objects displayed on a shelf in the depths of UAV Solutions' headquarters in Jessup might look like toys, out of context. To the untrained eye, the plastic doodads - some thick, some thin, some glossy, others matte, and in a variety of subdued colors, like black, brown, tan and white - could be sandcastle molds, toy submarines - maybe DEVO hats in conservative hues.

Anna Whetstone, 23, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 17. She was a high school junior in Hershey, Pa., playing on her school's field hockey team when she got hit in the head with a ball. "I was feeling fine at the time," she said, but over the next few days she had trouble with balance and "wasn't feeling well overall. " Computed tomography scans and an MRI discovered the telltale lesions that are signs of the degenerative disease. After the diagnosis, Whetstone switched from playing to coaching field hockey, but she continued dancing and she earned a neuroscience degree, with honors, at Moravian College in Pennsylvania.

Dwindling public dollars and charitable contributions have led to the demise of the Center for Poverty Solutions and the Maryland Center for Community Development, according to officials of both groups. Trudy P. McFall, former board chairwoman of the Maryland Center for Community Development, said the organization is working with local foundations to try to cover some of its outstanding debt. Officials of the Maryland Food Bank and Health Care for the Homeless said those groups will take on some of the services that the Center for Poverty Solutions performed, including feeding the poor and doing advocacy work.
