It’s a brisk Friday morning in October and the 2100 block of North Franklin Street is buzzing with activity. Nilda Ruiz, President and CEO of the Asociacion Puertorriquenos en Marcha (APM), is one of several speakers who have gathered on Ms. Margaret West’s property to send off the 200-some volunteers waiting to get started on their respective house projects as part of the massive “Block Build” by the nonprofit Rebuilding Together Philadelphia (RTP).

Among those volunteers were students from JEVS’ Project WOW program. Read more about the big project in Philadelphia Magazine.
