What Else She Said

My father worked primarily for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, a federal department...and was involved in managing a number of low income housing programs, particularly the senior housing programs that provided supportive housing for low income seniors across this state particularly the city. My mother who was originally trained as an elementary school teacher changed careers when I was in third grade and became a social worker, and for years worked as in-field, on the street for Baltimore City Department of Social Services social workers. She actually was the pioneer of the single parents service when teen pregnancy became [of] extremely huge prevalence in Baltimore City and the need to provide support; she helped developed that program. [It] provided a lot of direct counseling services and services from Children's Unit helping to keep families who were at risk for foster care, so they would prevent removal of the child from the house.
