11-21-11: The Most Basic Needs

November 21, 2011 at 8:00 am 1 comment


On Thursday, many of us will sit down to Thanksgiving dinner.  However, many of us in Baltimore and around the country are facing difficult challenges meeting their most basic needs.

Tom Hall takes a look at an organization that has been helping people in crisis for more than 40 years.  The Samaritan Community is based at Memorial Episcopal Church in Bolton Hill in Baltimore.  They provide assistance with food and housing, and offer counseling about substance abuse, employment, and education for about 700 individuals and families each year.   He talks with James Blue, a volunteer member of the Samaritan Community board of directors, and  Evelyn Fitzgerald is a former client, who now works part time at Memorial Episcopal Church.
