Meet & Greet

A unique social bonding exercise in Alwun’s informal garden setting. The friendly trust-building “Meet and Greet” series brings together community and police; Central City Precinct Commanders and beat officers, Garfield Organization members and residents. For several years now, this activity successfully brakes down perception barriers, encouraging light interaction – over food, games, and resident talent entertaining. These events increase attendance and enthusiasm at our monthly Garfield Community & Law Enforcement meetings, and engage the art of social dialogue connecting residents and police.

Population(s) Served

In partnership with Neighborhood Housing Services of Phoenix, Roosevelt Row and City of Phoenix Neighborhood Services Department NIA team, we bring together mortgage bankers, non-profit, housing counselors and realtors to facilitate qualification, assistance and personal contacts. One outcome is the increasing numbers of low-mod first time home ownership by artists and creative entrepreneurs.
