You can rescue your neighborhood
Leaders like Alendra Lyons from Mill City make DLF’s programs possible. She came back to her childhood hometown in 2011 to find once quiet streets had been claimed by drug dealers and makers of violence. “You live in that community,” Lyons said. “Not the houses, not the trees. It’s you. And if any change is going to happen, you have to be the one to be the driving force of making those changes.”
