What better way to show your hometown some love than by joining the Community Redevelopment Agency! That’s what Dominique did, and he’s already making a great impact bettering Delray’s community members. During the week, you’ll find him working at the Arts Warehouse where he helps with installing exhibitions and setup for workshops/rentals/events, social media, design, and more. He’s also busy on the Saturdays at the Delray Beach GreenMarket. On the day of the Market, he facilitates the SNAP transactions and the Feeding Florida Fresh Access Bucks matching. Dominique finds the best part about his job is meeting so many artists, creatives, and people in general. He loves Delray’s interesting crowd and loves being a part of it. A born and raised Delray-ian, he believes that the people in Delray are what make the city so unique because they come from all walks of life, making things interesting.
