HAND will achieve this by creating volunteer initiatives and invitations for involvement by using Neighborhoods NOW and Helping HAND to engage local communities.

Long-term partnerships will develop so neighborhoods will be empowered to become sustainable, healthy communities. These activities will lead to smarter, more sustainable housing developments and programs because the ideas and suggestions shared by neighbors were incorporated into the plans.
