Interfaith Works Opens New Home for Elderly
J. Bradford McCullough, a principal in the Litigation group, participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Interfaith Works' new Welcome Home, an eight-bed home serving elderly women. Brad, shown here on the far left watching County Executive Ike Leggett cut the ribbon, is the chair of Interfaith Works' Board of Directors. Interfaith Works is a non-sectarian interfaith coalition of more than 150 member and affiliated congregations representing over 75,000 families of many faiths, working together to meet the needs of the poor in Montgomery County, Maryland. Their newest endeavor, Welcome Home, provides a safe and secure environment for up to eight elderly disabled women, many of whom have a history of chronic homelessness - even living on the streets for decades - with no place to go. The program provides around-the-clock support, creating a permanent haven to meet the needs of the women who make their home there. The Welcome Homes staff work to optimize the residents' independence while helping to coordinate the individualized care they need. For more information about Interfaith Works, visit www.iworksmc.org.
