What can one woman do in the face of gun violence, gangs, and other issues facing Chicago’s at-risk youth? In the case of Diane Latiker, simply do what she could. What started with a few kids taking refuge in her apartment quickly turned into dozens and led her to start Kids Off the Block. 14 years later, Diane and Kids Off the Block has had a positive impact on more than 3,000 young lives that otherwise might have been lost to a life of gangs and crime. Hope you enjoy and are inspired by this conversation of generosity, impact, and being present.
