Not all neighborhoods are equal

Columbus suffers from a lack of housing, and especially affordable housing, a problem that hits low income neighborhoods the hardest. Those same neighborhoods also lack resources–think libraries, YMCAs and community centers. How do we engage the residents of those communities to consolidate their voices to gain access to more resources, and how we get those in more affluent neighborhoods to be empathetic and get involved? Duane Casares, CEO of Directions for Youth & Families, and Michael Wilkos, Vice President of Community Impact at the United Way of Franklin County, talk about these challenges. Listen to the conversation.
