Have you ever wondered if just one person can really make a difference? Well, if you have, don't mention that to John DeSantis. He's the Executive Director of the community organization Believe In Syracuse. Their mission is to promote positive perceptions and improve the quality of life in the Greater Syracuse Area.

This week on The 315, John DeSantis chats with Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss about the positive side of Syracuse. Also, he tells us why Central New York residents should be excited about its future.

Those in our community who are unemployed or underemployed face a daily challenge of surviving from one day to the next and struggle to meet basic needs like food and shelter.  Who is there to catch them when they fall?  In this episode of City Limits, Brian Moore examines important safety net programs, challenges assumptions about who uses them, and the local impact from national policy-making.
