PROJECT: Safe Home
PROJECT: Safe Home programs make sure that McDougall-Hunt is safe for all residents and visitors. This means making homes safer, streets safer, securing empty buildings and making sure residents connect with programs and resources to stay in their homes.
PROJECT: Green and Clean
Cleaning vacant lots and establishing Bailey Park were the catalysts for starting our organization and continue to be at the forefront of our efforts. McDougall-Hunt has a great resource in the amount of land we have and Project: Green & Clean focuses on ways to activate and use it to the benefit of all.
THE BAILEY PARK NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
The Bailey Park Neighborhood Development Corporation (BPNDC), formally known as the Bailey Park Project, was founded in 2013 by Katrina Watkins, a former social worker, educator, and long-time resident of the McDougall-Hunt. Dedicated to empowering her community in an impactful manner, Katrina created the Bailey Park Neighborhood Development Corporation to strengthen the McDougall-Hunt neighborhood through programs that encourage safe, sustainable, and equitable growth starting with the individual and radiating outward through the neighborhood, community, city and beyond.
The Bailey Park Neighborhood Development Corporation has become an instrumental force in the neighborhood by expanding its scope to include social impact projects that address poverty, blight, environmental sustainability, safety, health & wellness, education, and economic development.
