For Neighbors in Action, we catch up with Northwest Initiative, the non-profit that works to strengthen and sustain healthy communities in Lansing’s "grand neighborhoods."

It’s Wednesday and time for our weekly Neighbors in Action segment. Today, we look at Northwest Initiative, which offers an array of programs and services to improve the health of neighborhoods on Lansing’s West and Northwest sides.

Current State talks with executive director Peggy Vaughn-Payne and former client-turned volunteer-turned employee Vickie Smith.

Current State is always looking for more nominations for our “Neighbors In Action” feature. Please help us out and e-mail us your suggestions to currentstate@wkar.org. Put ‘Neighbors in Action’ in the subject line. Or tweet us: @KARCurrentState and tell us a little about why you think they should be featured.
