THE STORY:

Declared a historical landmark as a free, black land-holders, Roger's Road is a historical community that defined by our past. More recently, we were defined by our fight against the public landfill that polluted our land.

But our past is not all that defines us. We are fighting to modernize our community and improve our livelihoods through innovative strategies. This fundraising effort involves a three-fold plan.

1. Establish a community bank. This community bank will be able to provide small loans to community members to establish small-scale business start-ups that will bring more capital flow into the community. It will also be able to at the same time provide monetary grants toward future community improvement projects.

2. Revitalize our After-school Program. Our after-school program already exists, but it needs to grow so that we can bring all of our community's children together. The program emphasizes success within the school system as well as computer-programming skills in order to give our youth a competitive edge in the future job market.

3. Wireless and Computer-loan Programs. Part of the success in today's modern-age marketplace requires the ability to tap into the internet. Without access to this tool, jobs searchers can be shut off from millions of job opportunities and entrepreneurial endeavors. That is why we are setting up a wireless program to ensure internet access for our community. Our computer loan program will allow our residents access to computers that they will, through small payments, be able to own over-time.
