Clarissa's Story

“I think it’s going to be a really good change for the community and for the people.”

This summer, Imani Village welcomed 14 former Riverside residents to the neighborhood. The WRK Group shadowed one of our new residents, Clarissa, to capture and share her personal story as well as her hopes for a new chapter in life for her and her children.
