Up and Coming

Building Bridges was designed to address the growing social and economic concerns in the East Lake Courts.  As an article published on February 8, 2015, in the Times Free Press written by Yolanda Putman and Shelly Bardbury stated,  almost 1/4 of our city’s homicides occur in the Courts.  Our initiative seeks to improve the community in this area through community-based events, projects, and programs.  Be sure to check back here for more information on upcoming community events and programs!
