The Neighborhood Heroes Podcast and Video Show 

The Neighborhood Heroes Podcast and Video Show are designed to highlight the work of unsung heroes within communities. The production is hosted by Gloria Craig and Devon Jones. Both are residents of Cleveland, OH, and graduates of Case Western Reserve University’s (CWRU) Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences (MSASS) program.

The pilot season features four intimate conversations with individuals seeking to make a positive change in their communities.

The first episode will be released on March 15, 2022, and features Lee Kay, a long-time community organizer and the founder of Kay Coaching. In this conversation, we discuss her upbringing, the history of Cleveland, and the power of asset-based community development.
