Building Partnerships, Strengthening Communities
"Our neighborhood has extended beyond our building, thanks to the [Love Your Block] grant. Unseen lines that had been drawn between our Hi-Rise and our neighbors have been erased, as a result of the work that the residents were doing to fix up the property. Working outside our building has erected a whole new sense of neighborhood for us."
-Janice Myers, Carrick Regency Tenant Council
Creating Community Involvement!
“The Love Your Block Program helped us create a message board and living wall which draws warmth, color and texture to a blank and drab corner...it gives the corner a new life along with bringing community involvement and communication back to Beechview.”
-Estelle Simpson, Beechview Walking Club
Bringing Communities Together!
"The best part about our Love Your Block event day was having the opportunity to work with a diverse group of volunteers of different age groups, backgrounds and organizations".
-Juan Castellanos, The Kinglsey Association
