A day at the office

Violence Intervention & Prevention coordinator Susan Young, left, checks in with Antonio Walker, right, at “the office.” This gathering space along Olney St., is a hang-out where people pass the time drinking alcohol. Young is very close with many of the homeless substance abusers of the neighborhood and works to get them off the street. She has always carried with her the lessons of her parents, “Be good to people and get your blessings.”
