On this week’s Neighbors in Action segment, Current State catches up with Tashmica Torok, founder of The Firecracker Foundation. The non-profit helps children who have been the victims of sexual abuse find treatment and support and is celebrating its second anniversary this week.

Our Neighbors in Action segment this week looks at Camp Liberty in Jackson County. It’s a volunteer operation that gives veterans a chance to spend time outdoors enjoying activities like fishing, hunting, hiking and canoeing.

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for Neighbors in Action, when we feature people and organizations working to make greater Lansing a better place. Mid-Michigan is a culturally diverse region. Lansing has long been known as a place where refugees from various parts of the world have come to build a new life. One agency at the forefront of serving refugees is St. Vincent Catholic Charities.
