Community Renewal

Commentator Brian O'Nuanain takes a look inside a friendship house this week. These have become beacons of home in our community, turning around blighted areas of Shreveport-Bossier. 

Community Renewal International of Shreveport aims to revitalize the Queensborough neighborhood with the opening of its tenth Friendship House. The house is patterned after a community center, but with a live-in coordinator who delivers programs and services in the neighborhood. This is the second Friendship House to open in Queensborough.
