Supporting one another in a time of crisis

First day in Wheaton

Posted by meganmoriarty on April 29, 2009

The Neighborhood Service Center opened for business today at 12247 Georgia Avenue (housed at Catholic Charities).

Maria Chevez, one of the Community Connectors working there, just called me to say she talked to her first resident this afternoon! She was glad to have Magdalena from Catholic Charities at her side for support, but said, “no es facil el trabajo” (it’s not an easy job).

No, it’s not an easy job — lots of information to learn, computer systems to master and then, the hardest part according to Maria — those times when as a Connector you can’t really offer any immediate solutions. So, thanks, Maria, Rosa, Ann and Lily for your hard work so far and thanks to everyone that helped get this Center up and running!
