The project, spearheaded by Reverend Angelo Mante, Executive Director  of Alive Community Outreach, is in partnership with the Rotary Club of Fort Wayne.

WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with Mante and Rotary Club president elect Lynne Gilmore to learn what the program looks like, what they hope to accomplish and how this might impact the cultivation of peace in our community.
