Thread volunteers are real agents of social change. They form deep, enduring, and emotionally sustaining relationships with students, volunteers, and collaborators throughout Baltimore and grow personally and professionally from being part of the Thread community.
We moved around a lot when I was a kid…. People seemed nice; I had a lot of friends, but people always seemed like they were impermanent entities in my life. The relationships that I had in my life – my family – were the only things that were permanent. After joining Thread, I realized that true wealth is what you get when you have the ability to form a permanent relationship with somebody with whom you aren’t related.
