OUR VISION AND VALUES
We are a volunteer committee striving to make our neighborhood a better place to live for all through a social justice first approach. Membership is not required and our meetings are open to everyone residing in or working in the West End Neighborhood.
We are responsive to our community’s needs through the relationships we build with our neighbors, neighborhood businesses and community organizations throughout Providence.
Started in 2017, we operate as a conduit to inform and empower our neighbors. Following the Spectrum of Prevention described by Dr Palermo in a presentation he gave on August 17, 2017, we are focusing our initial efforts on community education and empowering individuals.
OUR Current focus
- Organize bilingual presentations by experts in our community
- Maintain a google group and this web site
- Share information on events and opportunities to collaborate with other neighborhood organizations on issues
- Offer an opportunity for neighbors to bring forth their concerns and problems, and provide direction and connect them to resources for further investigation of these issues.
