Melita studied the statistics of her youth and noticed that 32% of the city’s Far Eastside lives below poverty lines and and 40% of those do not have an high school diploma. Also, 23 Hoosier teens become pregnant everyday and Indianapolis crime rate is 113% above the national average. Melita’s heart was broken and she did what she does best. She strategically created and planned a vision and master plan to combat those statistics.
