WALK WITH A FAMILY


WALK WITH A FAMILY


Friendship is the building block of trust and reconciliation.  We foster friendships between families and individuals from communities of different socio-economic and racial backgrounds.  Mutual friendship becomes spaces where empathy and vulnerability build lasting friendship that form a foundation of integration for generations to come.

Safe Summers

The City of Annapolis is striving to insure that every child and youth, between the ages of 0-24, especially those who reside in a public or a low income/subsidized housing community, is provided with at least one meaningful and appropriate opportunity to experience a positive summertime activity and/or event—whether it's camps, "pop-up" camps, internships, job or career opportunities, etc.; and that when they return to school in September, that they will be excited and proud to tell their schoolmates all about their summer.
