July 2023 Newsletter – New Jobs, Graduations, and More!

Thanks to YOU, we served 48 people this month, including:

9 Single Individuals

13 Families

20 Children

Guests ranged in age from 8 months to 68 years old

What a wonderful month here at Talbot Interfaith Shelter! Many of our guests are celebrating milestones on their paths to Success, thanks to YOU and your incredible support!

Take a look at what you made possible this month:

One of our singles from Evelyn’s Place, Janine, moved into her own housing!

Three more guests at Evelyn’s Place started new jobs in July. Josh began working at Harris Teeter, Latoya has a new position at The Lab Childcare, and Barry is now at Acme Markets. Congratulations to all!

Two of the mothers at our family shelter, Easton’s Promise, are also celebrating this month. One secured two jobs in July, one of which is in her field of study – peer support for recovery. Her 14 year old daughter also started working as a volunteer camp counselor at the YMCA. Another mom (of a very active 3 year old) graduated from her CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) program! We are so happy for them!

Nia, one of the single individuals in transitional housing, was accepted into the workforce program through DORS (Division of Rehabilitation Services). She will be on campus at the Workforce Technology Center in Baltimore. Way to go, Nia!
