Weekly we focus on the work of area organizations advancing inclusion and equity in our community. This morning we welcome Annette Vandenberg, Executive Director of the West Grand Neighborhood Organization to discuss the lack of affordable housing in Grand Rapids. Joining the discussion is WGVU grant writer, Steve Chappell. This weekly segment is part of a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation aimed at increasing West Michigan’s capacity to influence public narrative affecting children and families of color.
