A Word about Neighborhood Associations:

LaCasa supports the formation and preservation of Neighborhood Associations. Neighborhood Associations are grassroot initiatives designed to help neighbors improve their lives together.   They provide a framework for building the relationships that are essential for nurturing collective action at the street level. Studies show that quality of life is higher and crime is lower in neighborhoods where residents work together to solve problems. Harvard University (Robert J. Samson, Dept. of Sociology)
