Episode 29: Bernadette "Bernie" Becker

Bernadette Baker is our newest employee at NeighborLink and is joining us as an AmeriCorp VISTA. We spend some time talking about what it means to be an AmeriCorp VISTA, her role doing research in the neighborhoods we're working with, and some initial learnings from our "What Makes a Healthy Neighborhood, Healthy" research project. Bernadette's life experiences, passion for learning, and her desire to think through the economic factors of community development all contribute to why she chose to join us at NeighborLink essentially as a full-time volunteer for an entire year. Look through this channel to learn more about what she's up to as she has a weekly "vlog" we're producing.

Episode 30: Denise Andorfer

Homelessness and poverty can seem like issues that are far removed; the sort of problems that affect other kinds of people, but certainly not us. On this week's Neighboring, Denise of Vincent Village describes a difficult reality—that some of the people who rely on their services have lived prosperous, hard-earned lives, only to lose everything to circumstances outside their control. It is a stark reminder that we do not own our fate, and that anyone could find themselves needing a hand. Join us to learn more about Vincent Village, and the support they provide to our neighbors in need.
