Whenever I conduct an interview I create a list of questions beforehand, and make the questions in depth just in case the person I am speaking to doesn't roll with the interview. In the case of this interview, I asked them one question, "How did the two of you get together to create the IDA program?" and they went into an hour long story that covered every single talking point I had prepared, along with stories that were all theirs.
When the two of them sit down together their chemistry is evident in the way they communicate; with an anecdote from one, and a nod of the head from the other, you can see their long history of social action with every word uttered, and the amount of respect they hold for not only each other but for this wonderful program and their clients. Dan and Danny emphasize how every single thing they do is for the client. They shed their blood, sweat, and tears assuring that the New Century IDA is an organization that always puts the needs of the client first.
Danny explains how IDA programs are a new form of social welfare. Rather than leave those with need dependent on welfare, IDA programs teach financial literacy, and educates and supports individuals in their quest for asset building and successful homeownership. Here is the 4 minute "teaser trailer" for the full interview I put together with video editor Chris Zaluki.
