Our History

In 2004, East Linden seemed to be sinking. Negative street life demoralized the neighborhood. But a group of residents began to meet regularly to change the course of the community, and through discussion and example, this Historic East Linden Project began to re-build a healthy neighborhood.


Our Successes

The Project's major initial success made our home a safe, pleasant place to live. As our effort matured, caring members of our group to help our residents saw critical needs and launched programming efforts to address them.

We have worked to respond to neighborhood needs by getting meals to hungry children, helping students with their academic skills, and bringing the community together.

More than this, though, the residents of East Linden have cared for each other every day.


Our Plan

We have moved our neighborhood forward, and we know how much work it takes to bring about change. Our vision requires that we expand our programs and support caring neighbors, and we are now adding the tools we need to take on this effort.
