August 8, 2014 - Lisa Conrad, left, helps Mady Richardson with her necklace before they walked the few blocks to South Main, a popular, rapidly developing neighborhood in Memphis, for dinner. Lisa, a mother of five, has been a resident of Foote Homes for twelve years. Before that she lived at Dixie Homes, another housing project that was torn down by the city. “I was in a very abusive relationship and it was the best thing that happened to me,” Conrad said about having the ability to move into public housing when she found refuge at Dixie Homes. “People call this the hood, the projects,” Conrad said about perspectives on Foote Homes. “No, this is not the projects to me. This is a community development. I don’t get down with the hood.”
