Affordable Housing and Drug Epidemic

These walks focused on 22nd and 23rd Streets.

On 23rd Street, we picked up two additional walkers as we passed by.  One of the people is a regular attendee at our Wednesday bible study.  The other comes to church regularly and lives close by.

We talked with a woman who owns and rents several of the houses around the church.  She said that she is a former police officer and tries to work with people to provide affordable housing.

We talked with a man who one of our church members had grown up with.  We talked about the drug epidemic that spread through the community following the Vietnam War.

We met a young woman who was here leading a workshop with students at PeterPaul.  We helped her carry snacks in for the students.
