Being a Neighbor and Employment

This walk focused on 21st Street.

One neighbor cleans up the block — cuts the lawn outside of the fence and cleans up trash.

One man talked about small sharks that he had caught out fishing.  They are in the freezer for eating.

One man was looking for a place to rent a room.  This is a common issue of people not having permanent housing.

Shortly after the walk I asked a group of men on a porch in the neighborhood if they thought employment was a major issue for the neighborhood.  They said absolutely.  They know its THE major issue.  They said that people in the neighborhood need to develop skills to be able to gain access to workplaces.
