In this episode, in our Community Esteem segment we hear from Mayor Jake Day about the creation of Anne Street Village, a transitional housing village of tiny homes for the homeless in Salisbury, Maryland.

Then in our Make a Difference Spotlight segment we speak to the founder of The Jeptha Group, Jason Naradzay and board member and supporter, Stephanie Thompson.The Jeptha Group is a nonprofit whose aim is to bring music instruction to the “forgotten of the forgotten.” Its workshops for the seriously mentally ill and violent individuals (SMIVIs) at Sing Sing Correctional Facility and beyond offer a lifeline for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people, offering a rare opportunity to find joy, collaboration and healing through music.
