The story of My Brother’s Keeper of Bethesda (MBKoB) is quite unique. Its creation is the amalgamation of a series of unfortunate events. First, the great recession of 2008 left me (and many others) scrambling to find a job for what became an employer’s market. My wife used to comment that in her job for each open slot, her boss would receive almost one hundred applications. Second, the number of folks begging on the roadside with signs – unemployed, with children to support – seemed to have increased significantly.
