The $10,000 grant will be used to support NNA’s Homeowner Assistance Program as part of the Choice Neighborhood Initiative. We appreciate this funding provided by Midland States Bank as part of the Invest STL Initiative.
There was a great turnout from 21st Ward residents who were joined by Alderman-elect John Collins-Muhammad, Committeewoman Laura Keys, Committeeman James Keys, Missouri State Representatives Steven Roberts and Joshua Peters, and Congressman Clay. Presentations by community outreach police officer Regina Moore, former Deputy Mayor Mike Jones, representative from Proposition NS Sundy Whiteside, Serving with the Badge Executive Director Christian Johnson, Habitat for Humanity Real Estate Development Manager Michael Powers, and North Newstead Association’s Executive Director Sal Martinez among others, provided great information, tips, and handouts for ways that we can work together as a community to increase safety and promote our 21st Ward.
