Empringham Tenant Group

Empringham in the past couple of months has been really coming together as a community. There has been a fair share of violence in the past that has deeply affected the neighborhood and we as a tenant group have put an effort to try to rekindle it. In the last couple of years, there has not been any community engagement which definitely caused a disconnect between neighbors and made many youths stay home. There has not been a middle ground for people to connect with each other and we want to use the city park grant to do so. By hosting events we can provide a safe space to bridge the gap for many to network and build relationships which then can lead to a more vibrant community. We want to integrate both the Community Housing and Co-op side of Empringham to come together as one neighborhood. This allows us as a tenant group to create a bond with our neighbors and provide the resources for the ones who need it the most. With the support of Parks People, the community clean-up and fall fest was the biggest we had was the biggest turnout in years. With the momentum, we have currently we can continue to host more events which will only strengthen relationships.
