In moving to Blackstone we’ve had the incredible blessing of getting to know Noemy and Erica, the community resource liaisons for Blackstone Elementary School, as well as Marco the program supervisor, and Keith the coordinator of the community center. In getting to know them and having multiple meetings with them we’ve learned so much about our new home. One thing that has become abundantly clear (we knew this already, but these relationships have confirmed it) –
We are surrounded by amazing people doing amazing work in our neighborhood to love the community. Our goal in living and serving in any community is not that we reinvent the wheel or come in and serve in whatever way is convenient for us. Our goal is to listen well to the community. One need we’ve been made aware of is care for the teachers and classrooms at Blackstone Elementary School.
