We are a group of community focused people transforming the Tree Streets Neighborhood of Lewiston, Maine.
We work to partner with any stake holder of the Tree Streets Neighborhood, including non-profits, city agencies, businesses, landlords and especially residents. Below is a list of some of our recent partners organizations.
What is a “healthy neighborhood?”
The definition of what a successful neighborhood looks like will be informed by neighbors, and expected to emerge and evolve over time. The components of a healthy neighborhood will be defined by the priorities of issues impacting health, and will be culturally sensitive and linguistically accessible to those in the neighborhood.
Key components of a healthy neighborhood:
Affordable, safe and lead-free housing
Access to medical care, healthy food and nutrition education, and safe places to exercise and play
Available employment and training
Places and ways to nurture social connections and access social supports
