On this episode Rabbi Mark and his wife Elizabeth are joined by Reach of Washington County Director Jeannie Asbury. She discusses the organization and their fight against homelessness and how they help people at risk for homelessness. Asbury converses how she got involved with Reach after working in the US Airforce as a targeteer. She found what started as a side job quickly transformed into her calling in life.
  Asbury details how wide the homelessness problem is in Hagerstown and for the DMV area and its wider ranging implications. Rabbi Mark and Asbury sheds light on how people find themselves at risk for homelessness and debunks the stigma and stereotypes around the epidemic.
