You chose Noah Gainsburg, the inspiring teen volunteer at joint-recipient Christi Greene’s St. Francis Neighborhood Center, as the Changemaker of the Month for January 2019.
Noah explained that the challenges of dyslexia helped him develop empathy that both motivates his volunteering and enables him to relate with a wide range of kids from diverse backgrounds.
Christi has led the Center, which supports the community in a variety of ways, for more than six years. She says, “Our mission is committed to ending generational poverty through education, inspiring self-esteem, self-improvement, and strengthening connections to the community. We are mostly known for youth development programs and resources for children and families living below the federal poverty line.”
