Northeast Valley Community

The Northeast Valley Community is characterized by its strong infrastructure for collaboration and sense of neighborhood identity. While facing many challenges, the Northeast Valley Community has been able to develop capacity by attracting investment and building relationships among stakeholders. Community leaders have come together to address issues including school readiness, healthy babies and child care, and engaging parents in decision making through participation in the work of collaboratives and boards. One example of the Northeast Valley Community's experience and success in collaboration is the work of area hospitals and community-based organizations coming together to create a continuum of care.

Community leadership in the Northeast Valley Community is described as "strong, proactive, involved, empowered, plentiful and committed to community."
