“I certainly wouldn’t be who I am had I not come here. I don’t know if I’d be as good of an organizer. Or have, at least, the tools that I got from being a part of SPEAC.”

But buildings alone do not make community. People must build a community, and that understanding is at the core of Hope Community’s approach to neighborhood revitalization.
