One day about several years ago, one of my clients, Dr. Claudia, a chiropractor, ventured out of the secure confines of her four-bedroom, three-bath home in the suburbs and drove into one of the inner city’s most impoverished areas. With a soccer ball in one hand and a Bible in the other, Claudia — a diminutive white woman with a smile as bright as a silver dollar — attracted hard stares and no small amount of suspicion in the African-American neighborhood as she worked the streets, recruiting kids for a soccer team. "I had looked around and wondered how to build a bridge to that neighborhood, and I decided to do it with a soccer ball and a Bible," Claudia says. "I chose soccer because I had to figure out what kids ages 5 to 12 could play without the big ones hurting the little ones. So I bought a soccer ball.  "I also bought a book on how to play soccer, since I didn’t know how."

Claudia’s job is to care for her patients, but her vision encompassed a whole lot more.  It was not her job to run an after-school program that takes kids off the street – but she did. It was not her job to set up training programs for adults to receive high school equivalency certificates – but she did that too. It was not her job to get the Post Office to come into the community to interview potential employees – another of her accomplishments.  It wasn’t her job to prune trees beneath which drug dealers found shade or to trim the hedges behind which young people would smoke crack – but she became excellent at it.

Claudia’s vision didn’t stop at the walls of her practice.  Her vision was to heal an entire community. She helped reduce drug dealing and other crimes. Her education and employment programs helped to create a better future for the members of the community.  Through her efforts she helped to raise the quality of life in one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods.  I asked her how it was possible, and she replied, "It took some courage for me to move into that neighborhood, but I always knew God was with me," Claudia says. "When you have that going for you, everything will be all right."
