When Kaiser Elementary School in Ypsilanti Township shut down as a result of the Willow Run/Ypsilanti schools merger, the nearby West Willow neighborhood received a serious blow. It wasn't long before the Greater Faith Transition Center took control of the old school building. From there, a lot of charitable action took place, such as providing a food pantry to offering clothes for job interviews. The center's founders, Pastor Robert Ford and his wife Dorothy Ford, talk about their work with WEMU's Lisa Barry and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg in this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi."
