Marcus Scott is a caseworker at Beans & Bread, our day shelter in Fells Point. A Baltimore native, Marcus grew up in the Walbrook neighborhood where his family has resided for generations. He describes a childhood surrounded by a closeknit and warm family in the neighborhood known for decay and neglect and a rough side.
His grandmother was a neighborhood fixture -- the type of person who wanted to fix things and help everyone and anyone with a problem. If Marcus had a friend going through a rough patch his grandmother would welcome them to stay in her home; she'd prepare delicious homecooked meals and provide warm, yet firm counsel.
Like his grandmother, Marcus has always enjoyed helping people. When it came time to pursue a career it felt natural to do it professionally.
