Greenwood Community Council
June Membership Meeting
Tuesday June 16, 7:00 – 8:30
8016 Greenwood Ave. N
Social Service Needs and Responses
The economy has turned around in Greenwood. Businesses are filling storefronts that sat empty two years ago, cranes are on 85th St., million dollar houses are going in. Amid this prosperity though, there are many in need. The picture above isn’t from Greenwood, but it looks a lot like my alley lately – people in need are more visible in the neighborhood, and there are many others who are out of sight.
So who is attending to the social service needs in our neighborhood? What trends are they seeing, and how well are public, non-profit and police working together to address the needs? And what are gaps that aren’t being attended to? This month’s membership meeting will address health and safety issues in the neighborhood and steps needed to do better.
