Description: This is an interview with Betty Isom. She moved to Cleaborn Homes in the late 70s and lived there for almost 30 years. She mentions the introduction of gangs, violence, and drugs and how she organized a neighborhood watch. While the closing of Cleaborn Homes was sad, it motivated residents to better themselves. The NAPA program helped her buy a house, and she worked for the Emmanuel Center.
