We discuss an outreach project that is bringing essential services to different Rochester neighborhoods.

The Neighborhood Collaborative Project (NCP) extends food, health care, and wraparound services to people in need. The leaders of the agencies making it possible say the NCP has had a meaningful and immediate impact on the people it serves.

This hour, we explore how it works and what we can learn from it in addressing anti-poverty efforts. Our guests:
