Since moving to the Alamo City from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1965, this community organizer has made a difference that few achieve in a lifetime. After studying in Milwaukee following a stint at Our Lady of the Lake University, Patti Radle committed herself to a simplistic lifestyle and helping the poor. Radle and her husband Rod became volunteer co-directors with Inner City Development, an agency committed to providing food and clothing to families suffering crises. She's also a teacher, singer, songwriter, poet and peace advocate. Radle was also instrumental in establishing the San Antonio Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, San Antonio Alternative Housing, San Anto Cultural Arts and Sidewalk Inc. She also served as a City Council member and helped establish Haven for Hope, where she serves as vice-chairwoman.
