Unreliable transportation, work obligations that don’t allow for personal time during typical business hours, fickle internet connections. These factors can prevent people from taking care of healthcare concerns or legal questions.

The Job Opportunities Task Force seeks to remove those barriers. Tomorrow, the nonprofit is hosting an all-night resource clinic in Baltimore, bringing volunteer lawyers and social workers to the community. We speak with CEO Caryn York.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
