marchofdimes.org LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 10.18 31 A 17-year-old in a white T-shirt hops the steps into the center. "You go to school today?" she asks. "Yes, ma'am." He nods and smiles. "He go to school today?" she asks, referring the boy's friend. "I don't know. Didn't see him." "Miss René" or "Auntie" — that's how Douglas is known here. She's a second mother, an advocate for the hundreds who've passed through. So many photo- copied pictures of children occupy her office walls that they now spill into the hallway, next to trophies and school ac- ceptance letters earned by what she calls her "center babies." e Baxter Community Center is in transition, though. at means Douglas is too. With a $264-million renovation of Beecher Terrace underway, nearly 300 families have relocated. About 300 remain. Tears well in Douglas' eyes just thinking about it. She recently got a call from another community center that needed paper- work on some siblings who had moved out of Beecher Terrace. She was quick to relay what foods and activities the kids like and how the one boy has a hot tem- per, so when he balls his fists — that's a sign; please, don't let it escalate and kick him out — get him to a quiet place, let him read a sports book or magazine, and he'll be OK in 10 minutes. Douglas recognizes a mother from Beecher Terrace across the street. "Where the babies at?" she shouts. "ey'll be out in a minute!" the wom- an replies, a wide grin across her face. By next fall, all Beecher Terrace resi- dents will have moved to make way for mixed-income housing. (Some can move back if they want.) Baxter serves kids from all over Russell, so the nest won't empty. But it may grow quieter. In the meantime, Douglas leaves each departing family, each elderly woman and man she's checked in on every day for years, with the same message: "You know where to find me." — Anne Marshall 1.
