Visually seeing progress and transformation in the community 2. Individual & Family Needs: (Includes Senior Services) What we can do with the members of the community (their input)? o Take notes o Pass out cards and collect at end Talk openly about fears and hopes for this community development How to get them there: o Go to doors ask each other (1 rep) from each house to attend Go out to neighborhood w/ bullhorn announcing meeting and purpose can also go to senior center, PTA meetings, churches Community bus (transport elderly and those without vehicle) to come to meetings o in the eveing so parents can attend Need a place for individuals and families besides sitting on the stoop o Inside the new healthcare center being built there will be an YMCA (great start) Need jobs/ job training our seniors could use computer training Need space to create entrepreneurship! o How can family start and own their own business? Safety for individual family needs and seniors Programs for multi-generation families many grandparents are raising their own kids No respect for elders anymore We need CDC to work in the community Housing homeownership for families Some seniors have lived in this community all their lives how can they own a home? (who or where can they go to get an understandning of those resources offered. How can we reach them to get the information to them in a way they understand? The people of this community don t need to be spoken to as a politician talk to them from your heart. 1

2 o o They are not concerned with your background or what degree you have. They are concerned about your heart willl you help them all the way Don t stereotype or judge them 3. Legal and Financial Support Services We need to focus on financial and legal education Current issues: foundation for our generations to come What programs not working?: CDC, closer, legal services offices within a community location Short term actions: o Attend a PHA financial counciling session o Provide the legal service follow up to help their desired need Everything takes time to start with a beginning we will continue the process o More well-rounded independent families Success will look like - families that are financially ready to cope with the change for our day shown to go forward. Come out for their own beneft their financial Priorities: Authority willing to do the services to actually tell you what the law is and how to correct it correctly. Credit reductions Provide legal services Score retired executive Financial: legal xxxx representation We need an onsite legal service team. Broad/ 15th & Erie legal services office are too far.
