Check out our latest blog by our intern, Marie!

"...I was originally assigned to work with the middle schoolers, known as the Butterflies. I have a very close connection with each one of them. I’m aware of what they like, dislike, what intrigues them, and even the way they speak (because most times they like to speak in codes, lol). During my time with them, I have strongly bonded with one special girl in particular named Quinntazia..."

Read our latest blog written by our social work intern, Grace!
"...Coming into this internship, I thought I knew what it meant to put myself in someone else’s shoes. Then I met a little girl named Jamariya. She lives near the Beth with her mom and siblings. If anyone has a reason to feel like a victim, it’s her. Jamariya comes from a single-parent, low-income household, and lives in a notoriously high-risk neighborhood for crime.
