Neighborhood Center work in progress.
United Way’s Neighborhood Center in the Ave A Elementary School is working with community partners and residents that live in the area to help strengthen this neighborhood. The Neighborhood has set goals around the following areas:
- Public Safety
- Opportunities for Physical Activity
- Neighborhood Pride
- Healthy Eating
- Student Achievement
The residents' newest project is focused on opportunities for physical activity in relation to transforming Ashmeade Park. In June 2016, they attended a park planning meeting lead by Hutch Rec to determine what is most important to them in a park. The goal is to create a park that reflects the needs of the neighborhood so that they will utilize and benefit from it being in the area. By strengthening our community one neighborhood at a time, United Way believes we can truly make lasting changes.
