From renovating vacant rowhomes to cultivating organic farms, clergy have undertaken a massive effort to improve life in the Sandtown neighborhood. We hear from Rev. Derrick DeWitt and Elder CW Harris about the revival of a long-dormant alliance of a dozen churches, all focused on projects to strengthen their community. There is an expansion planned for a local nursing home and an affordable housing program for those in addiction recovery. Plus, with the help of social workers and the FBI, Sandtown’s religious leaders are reaching out to gang members, as part of Baltimore’s anti-gun violence initiative--Operation Ceasefire--and convincing them to leave that life behind.
