With the COVID-19 vaccine out, there is hope for lives to return to normal. That word, “normal”, means a lot of different things to our communities, and for the community of Metcalf Park, normal means playing catch up.
In this episode of “The 411 Live”, host Beverly Taylor is visited by Jarrett English, the director of Housing Development for Metcalf Park Community Bridges, and Melody McCurtis, the deputy director of Priorities/Organizer for Metcalf Park Community Bridges.
The two professionals tell Beverly about the profound impact COVID-19 and the expiration of the eviction moratorium has had on residents in communities like Metcalf. Residents were barely able to sustain their families when the economy was shut down and now have to find a way to pay off months of debt. One of Jarrett English’s thought-provoking observations is, “Milwaukee is one of the few cities in the entire nation that it’s cheaper to buy a house than it is to rent.” Find out how this is possible and more on The 411 Live.
