"It's so hard to organize, but I will tell them, you cleaned today, February 24. I will tell them and I hope you keep doing it."

"This alley was scary. As a matter of fact, I was broken into from the back so that's when I started. At the beginning I cleaned the space I have in back of my fence, but then I got tired of it because I got no help. So then I started a movement which started in August but then I stopped because my mother died. I started again in February and it seemed like I was getting some traction and getting some more people. Before there were only a few people but this last February there were more. And now we are going to have a block meeting in March and I will start to give the flyers out again so that we get the whole community involved. It's so hard to organize, but I will tell them, you cleaned today, February 24. I will tell them and I hope you keep doing it."

Two who make all the difference.

"For me to bring my son is so he could do his community service because I know it's going to help him in the future. And some parents are the same. They think for their children. For me community service is important even if some people say it's a waste of time. But for me it's not. Volunteering helps with our feelings. I don't know how to explain it in English, but sometimes people get depressed and to come in and help and volunteer your mind goes somewhere else. You're not stuck on the problem you have you know. Because we all have problems. When I stay home I feel like inside me I can't go out like frustrated. So even if I come for a little while, I feel good. And then I could go back to my house and do whatever I need to do and feel good."
