Neighborhood Capacity Building

 

We are deeply committed to neighborhoods and villages growing in their capacity to become sustainable places to raise the next generation.

In 2013, we:

  • Built Lykins first Website : LykinsNeighborhood.com
  • Wrote 2 grants for Lykins Neighborhood to help build Lykins Neighborhood Capacity. It has not yet been determined if they won.
  • Established our second community garden with 45 plots on the corner of 12th and Norton
  • Established Lykins first permanent email address and phone number
  • Established Lykins Steering Committee
  • Campaigned long hours door to door in order to qualify for Google Fiber to help Lykins get free internet for 7 years. Our neighborhood came in dead last of qualifiers, yet victorious!
  • In the process of re-establishing Lykins Block Watch Captain Program
