Hosted by Bronwyn Dannenfelser

Our first guests Kobi Dennis and Sean Holley Esq. will be on discussing Project Night Vision and the Providence Midnight Summer Basketball League. In the spring of 2010, in collaboration with state and local law enforcement, community members and local business, Project: Night Vision was created. The mission of the program begins with providing care and services for inner-city youth ages 12yrs.-18yrs. In June of 2015, Sean was named Coordinator of Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza’s Midnight Summer Basketball League.

Our second guest is Leo A Beliveau III who will be talking about all of the different resources and projects happening at Comprehensive Community Action. In December of 1965, Cranston Community Action Program was incorporated. At that time CCAP served Cranston, Coventry, Scituate and Foster. As many of their programs grew to include cities and towns outside that catchment area, they decided to change their name. In September of 1994 they officially became Comprehensive Community Action, but still CCAP.
