Unexpected Friendships – Julia’s Volunteer Story

 In Video

Meaningful friendships emerge at different points throughout our lives, often when you least expect them. Some are formed as kids, a next-door neighbor or someone you met on the first day of school. Others evolve later in life, a treasured co-worker or a friend of a friend with a shared sense of humor. You never know if a person you meet will become your “up for anything” partner or a quiet confidante. At Thread, we bring together individuals from all different backgrounds to build deep and supportive relationships.

Julia became a Thread volunteer when she was new to Baltimore and wanted to find a way to help out others in her community. Now, 12 years later, many of the young people with whom she developed relationships are her very closest friends who find ways to help her.
