Story by Chris Miller, The Akronist
Along this rough stretch of South Street, hope can be an elusive commodity, something just out of reach from the more destitute Akron residents.

Operated by the Akron Bible Church, this small coffee house hosts free meals, AA meetings and Bible studies, among other services for residents to whom many have turned their backs.
