Delshan Baker - Thread
Delshan Baker is the head of investment for Thread. In this episode you will learn about Delshan’s story and how she is helping Thread create a movement that will change the nature of how we define family & communities.
Thread’s mission is to engage underperforming high school students confronting significant barriers outside of the classroom by providing each one with a family of committed volunteers and increased access to community resources.
By cultivating relationships that transcend racial and socioeconomic barriers – and by creatively building unconventional families and communities not defined by DNA and addresses – we can overcome the poverty of isolation and, in its place, establish a wealth of human connection permanently linked by unconditional love and support.
