Bridging Diversity

Confessions of a Yankee Catholic

Martha Pickman Baltzell

After raising three children in an affluent Philadelphia suburb, Martha became a volunteer at the Southwest Community Enrichment Center, directed by Sister Anne Boniface Doyle. Bridging Diversity describes her 25 years at the center. Her vivid narrative brings the people working at and using the center to life.

This book is not just another case study of poverty. It is the personal journey of one woman who attempts to learn to understand people of a profoundly different background. It puts a human face to a pressing social issue: relations between haves and have-nots.
