A Mother and Daughter Pay It Forward
Pictured clockwise: Sa'Nyia, Lakia and Richard

            Lakia Diggs is a mother and hairstylist at Mera Mirror The Salon in Belair-Edison. She has a Facebook page in which she post jokes and memes, and then watches it go viral. An idea hit her, what if she shared a "worthy cause"? Would it too go viral?

              "I want her to know that she may never know what situation she may be in. Our issues are so miniscule compared to others. We are blessed, so we are paying it forward."

              Paying it forward, Lakia set up a Facebook Event and called to her friends to send in supplies for a back to school drive. She dared them to share with others the same way that they would share information about a party. And then the supplies came; pencils, pens, notepads, erasers, uniforms, and backpacks. She describes her living room, with a laugh, as, "a small Staples Store."         

               She called around looking for places to donate the backpacks filled with supplies and came across St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center. She had heard of St. Ambrose from a friend of a friend who used them for a resource and spoke highly of the organization. The mother and daughter team came to St. Ambrose to donate the backpacks on August 19th, which is a special day for Sanyia. She has decided to celebrate her birthday by helping 30 Baltimore City students have a great school year.

Supporting Women: Network2000

             St. Ambrose received funding from Network2000 for our Legal Department to create a program to mentor young women interns as they pursue their careers in the legal profession.  Network2000 in a non-profit membership organization which supports women as their advance in their career. Our interns, under the supervision of the attorneys, assist in staffing the Neighborhood Legal Clinic. Meet the three ladies that joined our Legal Department.
