Description

Members of the Parramore community applying for the Holden Heights Front Porch Grant at Grand Avenue Park in Downtown Orlando, Florida, in 1999. On the left side of the picnic table, from front to back, the photograph depicts: Allison Hewitt, representing the Front Porch Initiative from the Governor's office in Tallahassee; an unidentified community member; Dedra Jenkins, the donor of this photograph; and another unidentified community member. On the right side of the picnic table, from front to back, the photograph depicts: Nancy Rivera; Kathy King; representing the City of Orlando Neighborhood Services; Debrah McCormick; and Mary Handratty. Standing up on the right side of the photograph, from front to back, the photograph depicts: Sharlene Mitchell, representing Safe Neighborhood Council; an unidentified community member; Randall Grief representing the Orange Blossom Trail Development Board; and another unidentified community member.

The grant equipped communities who received this designation with the ability to communicate and navigate the state and local governments. It took community members 30 days to put the grant together, and they eventually received the Holden Heights Front Porch Grant from Governor Jeb Bush (b. 1953).This photograph was originally discarded, along with other similar photographs, and then found by a local resident near the Emmanuel Fellowship and Worship Center, which is located at the former site of Restore Orlando. The collection was given to the contributor, Dedra Jenkins.
