“I don’t think this neighborhood would be the same if there’s no Hope Community here. …it was shocking for me, you know, why build it for this neighborhood the way it is, but I start trusting them when build the second building and the third building and the things are changing. I said then, I can show you now and that is the reason I am here right now. Hope is giving us everything, tools we need, this neighborhood to be safe. They are pushing day after day.”
Hope has lasted through neighborhood devastation and disinvestment, believed in possibility, and created a working model for change.
