The 6th Branch

For the past three years this nonprofit organization of veterans has found ways to, as it puts it, tackle community service with the “same intensity, urgency, and efficiency of a combat operation.” That’s great marketing copy, but the 6th Branch lives up to it: what it has achieved in the Oliver neighborhood—cleanup to make the neighborhood more walkable, repairing a playground, starting the Oliver Farm Stand to bring healthy food to residents, and especially in bringing people together to improve where they live—is a model of community-driven transformation.
