    Our family has been living in Englewood for 65 years. We put up paper,feed those that are hungry and we have a community Garden. I love where I live and I’m not ashamed of it.

    I lived in Englewood some years ago and I still visit family there often. I never had problems. I see wonderful progress in the neighborhood. New businesses, quiet streets, landscapes, building improvements, with things you can see and feel at peace. I was a teacher at Parker Elementary and loved it.
