Greenwood Community Council meeting Tuesday to discuss social services needs in Greenwood

The Greenwood Community Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N., to discuss social services needs and responses in the neighborhood.

The economy has turned around in Greenwood. Businesses are filling storefronts that sat empty two years ago, cranes are on 85th St., million dollar houses are going in. Amid this prosperity though, there are many in need… (P)eople in need are more visible in the neighborhood, and there are many others who are out of sight.

So who is attending to the social service needs in our neighborhood? What trends are they seeing, and how well are public, non-profit and police working together to address the needs? And what are gaps that aren’t being attended to? This month’s membership meeting will address health and safety issues in the neighborhood and steps needed to do better.

Speakers include: Rene Murry, volunteer leadership for Greenwood Aurora Involved Neighbors; Joan Caldon, Club Executive Director, North Seattle Boys & Girls Club; and Marty Hartman, Executive Director at Mary’s Place.
