Modello: A Story of Hope for the Inner City and Beyond; An Inside-Out Model of Prevention and Resiliency in Action through Health Realization
by Jack B. Pransky
The true story from beginning to end of how Dr. Roger Mills and staff accomplished the "miracle" in the Modello and Homestead Gardens Housing Projects applying the Health Realization approach.
Through extensive interviews with residents and Dr. Mills, his staff and other professionals, a very compelling and moving portrait is painted of how two low-income, inner-city housing projects replete with violence, crack, drug gangs, abuse, welfare dependency and hopelessness were completely turned around within 2 years.
Learn how people who lived among the most difficult circumstances were reached and came to find hope and to change their lives. "In all my years in prevention I have never seen this level of change in people!"
