I have been a member of the committee for a year and a half. I joined because I enjoy community-based research and work at Muhlenberg College, a neighbor to the APN.
2. What about the Promise Neighborhoods mission and the work that the organization does in the Lehigh Valley community is most important to you?
What is most important to me is that they are addressing the whole family – and many of the challenges of families are interconnected – so PNLV supports families to meet and overcome many challenges.
3. How do you think the work that the committee does can best assist families in the PNLV neighborhoods?
Our work will help PNLV to identify the needs of the community in order to work with community organizations and the city in a more targeted way. Hopefully, our work will also show progress over time.
