There’s a startling message on Lift Orlando’s website: “ZIP code is the No. 1 predictor of life outcomes.”

Eddy Moratin, Lift Orlando president, and Alfreda Clark, director of AdventHealth for Children's West Lakes Early Learning Center, came together to discuss changing that statistic, particularly in the West Lakes neighborhood outside of Camping World Stadium in downtown Orlando. The area is a nationally celebrated example of how residents, community partners and business leaders have joined forces to revitalize an underinvested Black neighborhood.

This new episode of the Inspiring Wholeness podcast explores the efforts to make generational changes in West Lakes, from cradle to career.

“Our vision at Lift Orlando is neighborhoods where children grow up with hope and return with joy,”

Moratin said. “The Early Learning Center and the partnership with AdventHealth, Primrose Schools, our friends of the Bainum Family Foundation, and the incredible team Alfreda leads are some of the brightest examples of that.”
