Make a Difference: New London Community Meal Center
WHO: Mark, a 45-year-old man.
AGENCY: New London Community Meal Center.
HIS SITUATION: Mark works as a teacher and has a master's degree but currently is homeless. He is working closely with New London agencies to secure housing and get back on his feet.

Mark also would be happy to get silverware, appliances or other furnishings to put in his new home once he has secured it.
