We host meetings with the community to discuss issues, opportunities, events and solutions to improve our neighborhood.
We raise funds to provide quality events to educate, entertain and enrich the community to turn strangers into neighbors.
We partner with other agencies to bring in programs in our parks. Free summer lunch, summer reading and art lessons are just a few offered.
We took down a damaged playground and replaced it with a community garden in 2011. The garden is located at the corner of N Bromley and Jackson St. We have raised 800 lbs of produce in 2016 and donated 500 lbs to a food pantry and 300 lbs to needy neighbors.
In December 2015, we purchased 1621 Washburn St. We plan to renovate this former warehouse into the future West Scranton Community Center featuring a multipurpose gym and community meeting space.
We have worked tirelessly since October 2010 to regain, restore, revitalize and sustain our neighborhood. Through resident surveys, we are able to identify neighborhood concerns and desires. This helped us to identify need to feed hundreds of children lunch; grow and provide fresh produce; co-manage the parks to make them safe; patrol and report suspicious activity; conduct neighborhood clean ups to combat blight and advise neighbors on safe practices and available services.
