Anne Arundel's median household income is nearly $86,000, but you wouldn't know it based on what Elizabeth Kinney sees each day. Down the street from the Annapolis Porsche dealership, Kinney runs the Light House, where the county's neediest residents seek shelter, job training and food. She's taking on a new challenge, chairing the Anne Arundel County and Annapolis Coalition to End Homelessness, which is joining the national "100,000 Homes" initiative focused on finding permanent housing for the chronically homeless. "You can drive in downtown Annapolis and not see poverty, but it really does exist here," she said.
