NWWNA updates and HABITAT continued work in West Willow

A special thanks from the entire NWWNA BOARD for the great turn out at the Community Conversation meeting last night. There's lots to do and lots coming up. We are so blessed to have Habitat as a partner. Just looking around the neighborhood and seeing the changes so far is so good. There are many West Willow homeowners who are so grateful for the programs like the Furnace test & Tune; Refrigerator Replacement; Veteran Critical Repair; Exterior Home Improvements and the beginning of Rehabbing Homes in West Willow to increase home ownership! Please continue to call Shataura Clayborne, our West Willow Community Development Coordinator for Habitat of Humanity. She can be reached at or 734.478.6331.  
Another one of our partners is Paint Ypsi who does exterior painting and landscaping. They have done homes on Onondaga and Nash. To see if you qualify for their program and to volunteer to help please go to their web at They have upcoming workdays and need your help. Let's lend a hand to help more residents and especially our seniors.
