One block at a time.
Almost three decades tens of thousands of volunteers have had the privilege of calling themselves Blight Buster for a day or a week, some return year after year with their classes, church groups, or companies preforming community service projects. All leave knowing that their service is appreciated and made a difference.
Few, very few have become full time Blight Busters. They come from neighborhood having to raised their children in a city in financial and physical ruin and refused to let it obstruct their view or potential. They are made up of community youth that work with Blight Bluster volunteers during the summer and want to gain work experience before college. They come from the military with a mission to clean up and rebuild after one of America's largest man made disasters.
