Even during chaotic times, Teresa found a reason to smile - the children.


This week on The Cherry Tree Listening Project, we focus in on the story of one woman who had a unique perception of Cherry Tree. Teresa Bowman is 69 years old. She’s a native of Brooklyn New York. She wasn’t raised in Public Housing…in fact she’d never lived in public housing prior to moving into Cherry Tree a few years ago. Her friends warned her that she was in for some culture shock, and they were correct.


Tuesday 5/20: In the midst of the sometimes chaotic surroundings, Teresa Bowman found some reasons to smile during her years in Cherry Tree: The Children. In today's edition of The Cherry Tree Listening Project she talks about the joy they brought to her life. Listen Now!
