SBC CDC offers new site in Homestead with a FREE program for high school students
Dashia Andrews, PhD, Director of Engagement & Economic Access at the Overtown Youth Center heads the program which is being held at ten different sites. “I’ve known Sharon for about five years. When we got the grant, I knew I wanted to expand south and reached out to her.” The “Sharon”, as in Sharon Coleman, Program Development Coordinator for the SBC Community Development Corporation (SBC CDC) in Richmond Heights, has collaborated with several Homestead City Council members for different projects; primarily focused on children and families. One of their major joint efforts headed by Councilwoman Jenifer N. Bailey was the popular May 2019 Art Walk in Blakey Park. As enjoyable as that event was, the IE2 Program is designed for a different purpose.
