In the Bronx, canine pal 'Proof' helps missionary care for kids
from Baptist Press
Squeezed between the Harlem River and the old Yankee Stadium lies the mostly forgotten neighborhood of Mott Haven. For decades, this South Bronx community has borne the brunt of crime, drugs and poverty in a city known for its luxuriously rich and desperately poor. It's home to Graffiti 2 Church and Community Ministries, and on this particular Monday morning, the building is quiet. It's the calm before the storm of activity here every afternoon. As soon as the last bell rings at the elementary school around the corner, some 25 first- through fifth-graders will fill the room for Graffiti 2's after-school program.
