Door Knocking in Greenwood Terrace 03.21.2012
Posted by chriswilhelm on March 28, 2012
In March 21st 2012 we had a Door Knocking in Greenwood Terrace Apartments with the goal of meeting our neighbors and sharing some important information with the community. Door knocking with us were community members, Community Connectors from the Department of Health and Human Services, and County Councilmember Hans Riemer. We all had the same objective: to know more deeply our community, and to learn what talents, goods and asset that our neighbors have. I think that door knocking is a good way for to understand what’s going on in our community, instead of only guessing or imagining what may be happening.
We have to look out for each other. Sometimes people who mean well can even have a negative impact on the community if they don’t take the time to visit the area, talk with folks, and share ideas. Ours neighbors are very strong and resilient; they have a lot of good ideas and they handle adversity by growing and expanding their capacity – they only need more opportunities for employment to support their children and to feel some respect.
Thanks to all the people that came door knocking; they believe in building a community from the inside-out!
