Change has come to America.  Eight years ago, local residents joined forces with big business and small business all across America to vote for change when the Obama Administration took charge of the Oval Office.  Now, eight years later, Americans have voted for more change with the election of President Donald Trump. We look forward to figuring out key business opportunities with the new Administration to continue making changes in our communities that will strengthen neighborhoods for the long term.

With a somber heart, we look ‘up’ to find hope and strength to carry forward a message of love to our neighborhoods.  FAITH matters more today than ever before. We must question, “What are we doing in America?” What is going on with each of us when we feel the need to carry a gun instead of a handshake or a warm hug for our neighbor? Why must we operate in fear, critique, judgment and hatred?

We each must make the decision and choice to stop operating with preconceived notions, use of stereotypes, from a basis of fear or hurt and not being focused on what is best for each other. Hatred knows that love is the cure. How do we exercise that on a daily basis? What are some of our issues?


Faith Matters - II

 “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”  - Martin Luther King

So, we write about ‘faith’ again….and having it. Seems tough as we recently celebrated MLK Holiday by marching against human trafficking, and by seeing the Kingdom Day Parade become more commercialized. Now, during Black History Month, we have to wonder out loud…”have we made any progress?”

The issues exceed just race now. Young girls are sold into slavery in our neighborhoods by local and national gangs, and corporations. What is happening with the ‘beloved community’? Do we stand by and watch as our young people have futures that dissipate? As our streets get more riddled with gang AND police violence? Where does our faith lie when it comes to making sure issues of justice and equity have play?

There are things to say. I celebrated 25 years at NHS in September, and I decided it was a great time to start a blog to say some of the things that we sometimes push to the side, and to celebrate by sharing daily accomplishments. Yes, every day we celebrate serving at least one more family and helping lift them out of poverty or improve their financial strength. We nudge them toward a better quality of life one step at a time. What a privilege.
