Review for Opportunity Neighborhood, New Brighton, MN, USA
I continue to be honored to serve as a Board Member for Opportunity Neighborhood, an organization that focuses on creating safe and stable neighborhoods through onsite programming and services such as onsite courtesy programs that focuses on solving problems within the community vs having escalated to police. In addition, safe and affordable housing communities are more likely to thrive when the families have access to out-of-school time/youth intervention, safety initiatives, information and referral, community events and special initiatives. All of which Opportunity Neighborhood has. I recently had the pleasure of attending one of their special events where children were exposed to both the history and art of break dancinng, including the children learning the dance moves themselves. It was pure joy to show how the children expressed themselves, had fun and most importantly, demonstrated self confidence and willingness to try new things. These type of programs instill life lessons that will carry forward for these children as they grow, creating a foundation for success. So proud of the work Opportunity Neighborhood does. Keep it up!
