"My wife and I moved into the Heights area because we love the people and want to be part of this community. The neighborhood's biggest asset is the people who have remained here, despite the changes the area has gone through over the years. Those people are friends of ours now, as are the new people who have come in. We love the sense of community here. It's nice to walk down the street and see people we know, have them over for dinner, and visit in each other's homes. We love it. We hope more people will move in and appreciate what's available here. I think it's important to help revitalize communities like the Heights. The reason I get up in the morning and commit myself to this neighborhood and to the transformation of my own life is Christ. That's the lens I look through."
Jared Myers is the Executive Director of the Heights Community Development Corporation. Their current focus is housing.
