Maria Paschke—2010 Fellow
I worked for the Greater Frogtown Community Development Corporation. They are a small nonprofit in the diverse Frogtown neighborhood of St. Paul that works to provide affordable housing opportunities and economic development in the neighborhood. It was an exciting time to be working there because they were just starting to offer affordable rental opportunities and I did a lot of community engagement activities on the topic. Most of my time was spend making an online directory of services and assets in the area to connect their constituent to services as well as organizations to each other.
