Martinha, founder of Mae, on an interview with Channel 12 Street Stories.
Meet Bobby- One of our dear clients. Meets us for weekly meals. We helped him transition into apartment living, and welcomed him into his new home with a warm, home-cooked meal with our outreach team. We give our clients, a familial like support system. This is in many cases, the first time our clients ever experience a sense of family, support and compassion. They tell us, they finally feel " like we matter"
