Toni Morrison from StitchinGirlMary's Blog

A few years ago I worked outside of DC at an organization that housed the homeless. Although the work was good — fed my soul and my family– the commute was draining. I eventually said goodbye to Bethesda, but have stayed in touch with most of my colleagues. They are an amazing group of individuals: I have never worked at a place with so many passionate and driven people.
