gerald commented on (HIP): HEAL in the Park

The plan is to hire a HIP Coordinator to work with registered neighborhood organizations (Greater Park Hill, NE Park Hill Coalition, HARP, and others registered with City of Denver) to invite their members to participate and leverage their network. Also, outreach will be done to local church communities, and other organized community groups.
We will also work with the Denver Quality Afterschool Connection to identify Summer Camps to bring them into the conversation and leverage programming.
Most importantly, we will go door to door to homes within 5 blocks of the park with flyers inviting them to visioning sessions about programming in the parks.
We also look forward to partnering with other organizations like the Dahlia Center for Health & Well-Being, Jack Vickers Boys & Girls Club, Hiawatha Davis Recreation Center, Pauline Robinson Library, EastSide Unified, and SHARE Network to invite residents to share their voice on what they would like to see in their communities.
