More than 20 years ago, Harry Lehotsky moved his family to Winnipeg's West End and embarked on a journey to help revitalize this marginalized community. As founder and senior pastor of New Life Ministries, he put his faith into action. He founded Lazarus Housing, which renovates abandoned houses for resale to middle- and low-income families. He also established the Ellice Street Café and Theatre to provide employment for local residents as well as to build civic pride and spirit. Renowned for his conviction, determination and courage, he remains an inspiration and a model for other activists who champion community development and healthy neighbourhoods.
