THE BENEFICIARY

Homeless Individuals in Maryland

The Story

My heart holds a special place in it for the homeless population. Throughout my human services career, I have worked with a number of folks who were homeless. From my work with the homeless population, I have been able to witness first hand how humble, appreciative, and caring they are. Over the 2014 holiday season, with the help of my family, I was able to make 47 bags filled with necessary items to hand out at the homeless parks in Baltimore City. This was an incredible experience that was clearly appreciated by the people we were able to touch. I was able to feel great about what my family and I had done but couldn't help walking away wishing I could have done more!

My goal is to do more! To provide self preservation items year round. My goal is to start a non-profit organization in Baltimore to be able to help the homeless population. Right now, I am working out the logistics of starting a non-profit organization called "Help the Homeless Initiative." I have started the lengthy, but totally worth it, paperwork process. However, I can't do this without money, without help, and without support. I am starting this fund to make my dreams come true to be able to dedicate my entire career to helping the homeless population.

Thank you dearly for believing in me and my vision, and for helping me make this dream a reality! Thank you from myself and from my family! Thank you in advance from all the amazing people, I will be able to help as a result of your generous donation!

XoXo,

Sara Breidenstein
