Listen to My Interview with Diane Latiker from Kids Off the Block

Diane Latiker

I am partnering with We Are Not Alone – No Estamos Solos to highlight community heroes committed tot he prevention of youth violence. Diane Latiker, the Executive Director of Kids Off the Block, is one who comes to mind when people think of youth programs on the South Side.  She opened her home to the kids in the community to get them off the streets, and they just coming. She started off with about 10 children in 2003 and has about 300 now.

Listen to my interview with this incredible mother, neighbor and community servant now.

If you know of other community leaders who have organizations and programs on the South and West sides of Chicago that are committed to youth non-violence, please let me know.
