We have all been excited and inspired by the work we’ve been doing at Dana Court public housing. At first we thought we would be going to a rundown apartment complex with people that wouldn’t be interested in our being there, but it ended up being the complete opposite. The residents at Dana Court became involved with our project and helped us to complete our goals, which were to build two benches and create two flower and vegetable gardens. The children of Dana Court were extremely motivated in helping us build and paint the benches, which showed us how much they care about their living environment. Dana Court is a special place because of its community. This experience opened our eyes to how each of us cares for our homes and how a person’s home does not define their personality.
