Public Safety and Civic Pride

Haverhill's Mt. Washington police officersThe Mt. Washington Alliance strengthens community relationships through neighborhood events and direct outreach to residents, businesses, agencies, schools, churches, and other organizations to create a sense of unity.

We bring people together in many different ways, such as the NeighborFEST street fair, neighborhood suppers, and other community events. Urban Kindness and our other Alliance member organizations also host community gatherings, a community garden, and a range of other neighborhood projects.

In addition, the Alliance works with city officials and other agencies to provide channels for residents to have a say in directing community efforts. Working together to improve provision and use of city services helps us increase both public safety and civic pride, both essential for neighborhood revitalization.
