Celebrating Mary! "I see myself as part of the solution to homelessness"
Describe your role at Bellwether:
As an Assistant Site Manager, I see myself as being part of the solution to homelessness. I am an advocate for prospects/residents who assists them in navigating the application/certification process as well as providing a safe comfortable home for them.
Mary is also the author of The Neteru - How We All Came To Be!
What do you find most meaningful about your work?
Being there for our residents! I love hearing about their successes and knowing that they can accomplish them because they have a comfortable home to live in.
Tell us about a woman that you admire or are inspired by (past or present).
There are so many great women that I admire and who inspire me. One of them is Harriet Tubman. Because of her many Black people experienced freedom long before slavery became illegal. She recognized her role and stepped into it unapologetically and with vigor. She inspires me especially when I am in a situation that seems impossible. She made a way when there was no way. If she can find one, especially at that time, then surely, I can.
