Our CEO, George Jones on why our new SE Center will continue changing the odds on inequality in this region.
Yesterday was a big day for Bread for the City. A BIG ONE. Yesterday, we symbolically broke ground at 1710 Good Hope Road, SE, the future home of our new service center east of the Anacostia River. This day was a long time coming, and was full of excitement, love, and hope.
Bread for the City was there for Terri through five daughters and many of life’s ups and downs. “There were times when I got laid off from a job. I’d think, ‘Here we go again.’ But Bread was always there.”
And now, Terri is there for Bread for the City—as a staff member! After going through our community organizers training, she was hired as a community organizer. Today, she helps individuals who are struggling—very much like she was—to find their voices and advocate for their rights. Specifically, Terri is passionate about fighting for affordable housing for residents of the district and has even testified at a District of Columbia Housing Authority commissioners meeting.
Meet Terri and other Southeast Center leaders at the groundbreaking for our new Southeast Center on Thursday, May 17th at 9am. RSVP here: www.breadforthecity.org/groundbreaking.
