If you have been following our Baltimore Positive journey since the spring, you know that one name and one organization have been mentioned repeatedly by many of our esteemed guests and local leaders. Many of our brightest minds have told us that Sarah Hemminger of Thread is alocal leader in changing the lives of young people in Baltimore.
Despite being a self-described “introvert,” Don Mohler and Nestor Aparicio managed to get two hours of incredible detail about the concept and implementation of Thread, Hemminger’s evolving organization designed to take at-risk 9th graders and provide a resource that will get them to high school graduation.
Let Sarah Hemminger tell you about her special relationship with Maurice, a young man she met 15 years ago in beginning Thread in final of three chunky, emotional, eye-opening segments.
This is why we did Baltimore Positive…
