Annapolis needs We Care and Friends and We Care and Friends needs Annapolis.
It was a powerful evening and a reminder of how important our work is with the local communities. There were at least one dozen people in the room supporting We Care and Friends during our three minute testimony. Four clients stood at the podium and shared their personal journey through homelessness, addiction and desperation with the help of Larry Griffin and We Care and Friends. The stories ranges from clients who lived in the streets and struggled with addiction to clients who had lost their place in their family and community. A pastor from Downtown Hope spoke about how his partnership with We Care and Friends has benefited the community and their church. Larry closed the testimony with his thanks for their support through the years and that “We need you, and you need us.” Mayor Josh Cohen thanked our clients for sharing their challenging stories with the council and the public. The testimony was closed to a round of applause and “Amens.”
