We'll be back to Daniel and Inuk after this quick question for the Elizabeth partners!
Darryl Jackson
Cathy, did you find that the condition of the neighborhoods have any impact or influence on any measures of success? I notice in the picture (maybe the sites were cleaned) but the areas look nice, comfortable, and thriving as compared to my city, Paterson, where we have programs like this and I am doing what I can to get to the level you have brought Elizabeth.
Joanne Lee
Keep the questions coming for our presenters! We'll have time to address as many as possible.
Darryl Jackson
Daniel and Inuk, is there a certain number of hours per week that you set asside specifically for community engagement? Is your job a +40hr per week job?
Joanne Lee
Residents have their "stories of self"!
Joanne Lee
We can only facilitate a collective "story of us"
Darryl Jackson
how do we get tenants to stop the blame game and take responsibility and build trust? thats a huge struggle for me and i see why but whats your perspective?

Darryl Jackson
TOTALLY AGREED (about venting and trust), but there must be a point where venting stops and movement must take place. I do understand. Thank you for the response. I will move forward with those words in mind.
Darryl Jackson
Cathy, after the question about yr-round service, do you have a greenhouse? have you thought of one? We are helping a community garder here in Paterson and they recently acquired a greenhouse. Might be a good suggestion?
Joanne Lee
