She helped pioneer community-based strategies in 13 LA neighborhoods that support the vastly under-served population of the financially distressed. Her work combats poverty and isolation by teaching people to leverage existing resources through relationship building. She has helped empower people to become involved in advocacy work and creative problem-solving within their own neighborhoods. Using Time Banking as the main form of leverage, she's helped to create maximum impact through minimal infrastructure by harnessing the power of community social capital and she wants to help more communities do the same.
