Hope In Dunbar - A Video Tour in partnership with Gulfshore Life

Looking for Hope in Dunbar-Gulfshore Life Magazine-Naples-Fort Myers-SWFL

Join CJ, Meci and Tonio on a tour of their community. They'll take us to Schandler Hall, a favorite spot for pickup basketball games; to Renaissance Preserve, a once rundown housing complex where we bump into Hoops on a Mission founder Dwayne Jackson as he runs a community event; around the duplexes near the STARS Complex; and over to The Jones Walker Apartments, referred to as "The Shack."

The January edition of Gulfshore Life magazine features a story by Jennifer Reed. In Part one of this two-part story, Jennifer introduces us to the community of Dunbar in Fort Myers, Florida. While this community is in the news frequently with a brief negative connotation, this propagates a false understanding of the area and those who live there. We created this complimentary video piece to provide you with a first person perspective as we do a drive through tour of the key areas through the eyes and voices of those who still find and inspire hope for a brighter future for this area. Be sure to read the article and watch for the 2nd part in the February edition.
