Voice of Faith Breakfast Recap

Dozens of community leaders joined us on the early, rainy morning of May 16, 2018, to fellowship, enjoy breakfast, and learn more about the work we do to provide hope for vulnerable individuals in Maryland, D.C., and Virginia.

It was our first annual Voice of Faith Breakfast held at Martin’s East in Baltimore.

Guests were seated next to “table captains” or representatives from our organization, who shared their personal experiences with Volunteers of America Chesapeake.

Our CEO Russ Snyder and board members shared their personal connections to our organization’s mission and discussed how community support can help us serve thousands more people facing homelessness, intellectual disabilities, substance abuse, and reintroduction to society after prison.

Participants were given journals to write down ideas on how they can become beacons of hope for people in vulnerable situations.

We wrapped up the event with a heartwarming video featuring three clients who faced everything from homelessness to family drug abuse but are now thriving with new life plans and hope.

We raised $30,000 at the event for our Maryland programs!
