World of Possibilities

Message from Maryland’s Governor It is my pleasure to congratulate Caring Communities and the 9th annual World of Possibilities Expo. For over 12 years, Caring Communities has sought to address the needs of so many individuals in our State, and for that we owe this organization our gratitude. Caring Communities and the World of Possibilities Expo connect so many of our neighbors to vital services and information. Thanks to the efforts of so many caring parents, care providers and volunteers, over 400 people have been trained to provide essential respite care services to Maryland families through the Caring Network. As we work towards a better, stronger Maryland, we have tremendous progress on which to build. We have taken action on important initiatives to empower our neighbors and improve our quality of life. Together, united in the dignity of every individual and in our responsibility to advance the common good, we are building the One Maryland we hold in our hearts. Working together with groups such as Caring Communities we can continue that progress to make sure every one of us has the opportunity to make a meaningful and positive difference in this world.

Thank you for your passion and perseverance. Governor MARTIN O’MALLEY
