Repairing The World

Courtesy Catholic Relief Services

Today is United Nations World Humanitarian Day. In that spirit, we meet two people whose life’s work is serving others. Lucy Steinitz is a senior technical advisor for protection at Catholic Relief Services. She attends to populations that have experienced trauma to help them find ways to heal and thrive.

We also meet Cindy Williams, who founded Loving Arms, a non-profit that provides shelter and resources for young people experiencing homelessness in Baltimore. 

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Melissa Gerr is a producer for On the Record. She started in public media at Twin Cities Public Television in St. Paul, Minn., where she is from, and then worked as a field producer for Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland. She made the jump to audio-lover in Baltimore as a digital media editor at Mid-Atlantic Media and Laureate Education, Inc. and as a field producer for "Out of the Blocks." Her beat is typically the off-beat with an emphasis on science, culture and things that make you say, 'Wait, what?'
