"Thinking outside the box to get to the heart of Wilmington's violence issue, that's what a University of Delaware professor did when he trained a group of men and women who were either caught up in life on the streets or the criminal justice system to collect data from residents in two poverty stricken neighborhoods. Many call the study an intervention experience designed to direct some of those data collectors to better opportunities." - whyy.org
