The community that I have selected is Helena, Georgia. It?s a small rural community consisting of about 2,300 people located in Telfair County. It is a railroad city with McRae, Georgia. A strength of this community is that the people are willing help one another. A challenge this community faces is drug use, shortage of community activities, and community violence. One can identify this city with abandoned buildings, burnt down homes, vandalism, litter, and damaged streets. I think that more activities or things to do, a playground, community center, and a convenient library in the city will reduce the challenges this city face. Letting the community come together to make this change will make a difference.;Refer to the community you selected for this week?s Discussion.
