Walnut Way’s 20th year is on the horizon as we approach 2020. As we close this decade, I’m reminded of how far Lindsay Heights has come together to build a stronger community. It’s also a time to reflect on the health, employment and economic challenges we face. There are many solutions at hand that Walnut Way works towards under the umbrella of our Wellness, Work, and Wealth Programs. I would like to thank you for your continued support on our collective journey. It can’t be done alone.
A Letter from Executive Director, Antonio Butts
Jeff knew he wanted to work with his hands. He came from a family of builders. He couldn’t see his dream or realize his vision because he was isolated, unemployed, and nearly homeless. In the Lindsay Heights community, a common barrier for men seeking long-term employment is a lack of social support. When Jeff joined the Men’s Wellness Group at Walnut Way, it was his first step towards becoming well. Through the course of two years, Jeff engaged in programs at Walnut Way that focus on supporting community members through the building blocks of Wellness, Work, and Wealth.
