Resident, Parent & Community Gardener

Living in the McDonough community is like living on a safe campus.  Most of us don’t know each other by name but we know each other by what we look like. We see each other everyday as neighbors. We smile at each other. Maybe see each other at the community center, the garden, bus stop or whatever. 


VOICES OF THE NORTH END is dedicated to raising the visibility of North End residents and community goers.  Over the past few years In Progress interviewed and photographed individuals and families that consider the neighborhood their home. In Progress worked in partnership with the City of Saint Paul to identify residents willing to share their stories about what they appreciate most about the neighborhood.
