• Down But Not Out — Life in South Central

    1,293 views 3 years ago
    South-central Elkhart is more than what you see from driving through the area, watching snippets on the local TV news or reading the police reports.

    While the neighborhood just south of the railroad tracks certainly has its share of challenges, including crime and poverty, the residents who live there also have a certain sense of resilience — and a belief that somehow they will survive the tough times.

    The Elkhart Truth today is launching a three-part series that opens a window into life in south-central Elkhart and the people who call it home. We’ll look at the struggles of those who live in the area and how they’re overcoming the everyday challenges of the impoverished neighborhood. We’ll talk to community leaders and others about how life in south central has changed.

    The Elkhart Truth offers local community news including crime, business, schools, sports and more from northern Indiana and southern Michigan.
