“The renovation of our own home became secondary to the renovation of our community.”

Sharon & Larry Adams

When Sharon Adams moved back to her hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in the late 1990s, she needed help with fixing her house. Initially there to do electrical work, Larry Adams found himself enamored by Sharon. The two fell in love and embarked on a new undertaking: revitalizing their neighborhood one lot at a time. 

At StoryCorps, the couple reflected on the growth of their relationship, as well as their involvement in the community.
