Volunteer: Stories of Philanthropy Neighbors Creating Neighborhoods

Sheenita Robinson is a community activist. And she's not happy about the boarded up and abandoned buildings in her Washington Park neighborhood that attract gang activity. She’s got an idea for a mobile app she hopes will hold the owners of those buildings accountable for them and help the neighborhood become safer through community involvement.
