Cherishing the Divine in All
“Cherishing the Divine in All” is the mission statement for the Catholic Charities outreach in Baltimore, Maryland; they “walk the walk” most people only talk, caring for over 160,000 people annually.
Some people just need a hand up, not never ending handouts. Kianna is one who was transformed by this organization in a meaningful and life-changing way.
