For most of us, human trafficking is a just grim statistic in the news. For Laurie Kallevig, it’s up-close-and-personal.

Syrian Refugees & Ten Thousand Villages

Syrian Refugees & Ten Thousand Villages

According to SyrianRefugees.com, “an estimated 9 million Syrians have fled their homes since the outbreak of civil war in March 2011.” It seems in all the years since, nothing shocked us—we Americans who are thousands of miles away from the conflict—more than the image of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi dead on the sand, his body having […]

Kickoff to Demolition

The public is invited to the kickoff event as the Desiderio Project gets into the swing of things—like demolishing. A 5.17-acre parcel is the location of a former U. S. Army Reserve Center.
