Lucille Gorham remembers a quiet, "nerdy" scientist who became a regular presence in her East Baltimore neighborhood, walking down dangerous streets and alleys as if he didn't know better. "He was very easy to talk to, didn't mind being in the neighborhood," said Gorham, former president of the Middle East Community Organization. "He talked like I talk, didn't talk with a lot of professional language I didn't understand." The scientist was Mark Farfel, the public health researcher who spearheaded a study eight years ago to see if composted sludge spread on inner-city yards could reduce the lead hazard in soil.

Thomas Acree, a neighbor, is mooring the electrical outlets and wiring the lights. Willie Stewart from New Lebanon Calvary Baptist Church is fixing the plumbing and patching the pipes. And Lucille Gorham's son, Charles Bellon, is hauling trash and painting the stairways.When it came time to turn the vacant East Molding Republicans Club in East Baltimore into a community center, Gorham didn't plow through the phone book for affordable contractors. Instead, the longtime community activist coaxed family members, friends and neighbors -- a mix of unemployed and day laborers -- into volunteering to fix it up.She found in them an unsung community resource, which she hopes others tap into.
