It’s well-documented that Syracuse is one of the poorest cities in the nation and the unfortunate home to the highest concentration of African American and Latino poverty in the country. This often leads to high crime rates, especially for youth who lack structure and access to opportunity.

To help them meet their goal, ABC was tasked with capturing the story and mission of the foundation. We developed print pieces, infographics, a PR strategy, photography and a documentary about the Foundation’s journey.
