What We Do
Announcing the Launch of the Block Champion Program Building a Stronger & Safer Miraloma Park from the Block Up!
In 2016, after seeing communities near and far come under incredible stress from earthquakes, hurricanes, wild fires and heatwaves, our community voted to secure a grant from Sup. Norman Yee’s Office to create a program that empowers one or more neighbors on each block to be ready to care for their families and immediate neighbors during times of stress. Called the Block Champion program, participants receive a cache of supplies and customized training that advance their efforts to support the health and well-being of their neighbors should they need help.
This program was designed in response to the growing body of evidence that neighbors who are connected socially are more likely to survive stress events and remain healthy vibrant members of communities.
