Spiritual Program

IMG_0690 Our Spiritual and Community Affairs Director Michael Brown works to address not only physical and educational needs, but also the spiritual and emotional aspects of their lives. For nearly two decades Pastor Brown has used faith and open dialogue to ease tensions, promote understanding and alternatives to violence within the Coco Solo community. As the community transitions to Buena Vista, interfaith dialogue will play an important role in the integration of Coco Solo residents with current Buena Vista neighbors, many of whom have lived in the area for decades. Through open dialogues with faith and community leaders, our goal is to create a coalition of leaders to jointly promote peaceful relations and ease potential tensions among all Buena Vista residents, as well offer spaces through which the community can come together regardless of race, creed, denomination, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age or physical or mental ability to discuss, share and promote the values and bonds that unite us as a people.
