Greetings to all,

We are still looking for volunteers to head up the committee for the Halloween Party on October 24, 2014.

The event usually runs from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Nature Center with various activities for the kids. Unfortunately, no one has volunteered to run the event which means we will have to cancel it for this year. I wanted to put this out there before the end of September in case there is an interest in doing the event.

Greetings to all,

This Sunday, September 21, 2014, is the neighborhood cookout at the Lowry’s, 919 Egan Hills Dr., from 5 pm to 7 pm. There will be hamburgers, hot dogs and water provided. Please bring a dish to share.

We will be having a vote on the NSP budget for the end of this year and 2015. I will send out the figures tomorrow so everyone will have an idea of what the budget will look like. There will be a community sign in sheet and volunteer board for the positions that we need to fill.  

In the event of rain, the event will be canceled and not rescheduled!

Hope to see everyone there!

Local residents in need of affordable health services will benefit

Cincinnati—The City of Cincinnati Primary Care (CCPC) was awarded a $1,323,000 grant from the Federal Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA). The grant will support comprehensive primary health care services for the service area formerly served by Neighborhood Health Care Inc. and includes: Walnut Hills, Evanston, Mt. Auburn, East End, and the surrounding areas of Norwood and Harrison. The CCPC will partner with Crossroad Health Center (Crossroad) who will serve as a sub-grantee.

“We want to recognize the great work being done by dedicated medical professionals in Cincinnati to ensure that those in need of care are getting it. These resources are much needed and will be put to use immediately. Another job well done.” Said Dr. Rick Schwen, Chair, Cincinnati Board of Health.

This grant will, at no additional cost to local taxpayers, ensure the provision of services for medically underserved populations, including thousands of local residents. The target population includes individuals and families that face a number of health challenges, including high rates of chronic illness, poor birth outcomes and multiple barriers to accessing care. The target population exceeds national benchmarks in diabetes, obesity, hypertension and pneumonia rates and fares poorly in maternal health indicators.

At health centers and school based health centers a full range of primary and preventative services will be offered directly, or by referral, and include: general and internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, dental, behavioral health and substance abuse, lab and diagnostics, and referrals for specialty care. Related services include health education, case management, eligibility assistance, translation and transportation assistance.

The CCPC, and partner Crossroad, will use the grant resources to add providers and enhance access to health services for those in need. Many of these individuals have been without a permanent medical home since the sudden closure of Neighborhood Health Care Inc. on December 31, 2013.

“This will position us well and allow the City to take full advantage of the Affordable Care Act. Those in need of care are the beneficiaries,” said Dr. Noble Maseru, Cincinnati Health Commissioner.

“We are excited to team up with Crossroad and our many community partners throughout the region to enhance access to quality, affordable health care,” added Joyce Tate COE, CCPC.

City of Cincinnati Primary Care operates 5 health centers, one dental center, one STI center and 10 school based health centers throughout Cincinnati. Together they provide services to 34,000 children and adults in need of high quality health services.

Crossroad is a well respected, faith based organization that has provided health care services in the Cincinnati region for many years.  




I’m excited to announce that Quante and I are hosting a political fundraiser on Saturday September 20, 2014 from 3 to 5 pm for Fred Kundrata at 1239 Paddock Hills Ave Cincinnati OH 45229.
Fred Kundrata is the democratic candidate for U.S representative for Ohio’s 1st Congressional District running against Steve Chabot a long seated republican. We have had the opportunity to meet with Fred Kundrata on numerous occasions and through those interactions we have developed a great appreciation for his character and what he stands for in regards to what he will bring to Congress. We invite you to come out and meet with him.

Our goal is to raise at least $2000 to help send Fred to Congress. We would be so grateful for your support. Please come out and join us, meet Fred and see why we should help support his journey to Congress.

It is time to change Congress and the only way for change is to remove incompetent politicians and replace them with new people with fresh ideas. 

Having access, building relationships and being directly involved with our elected officials is very important. We have the power to make a difference. Get involved!

Hello. I hope this finds you well.

I am writing you today to ensure that each and every community, neighborhood, community council, and CDC in the region has access to the same information.

I want to share with you a link to the People’s Liberty website, and a few important documents that outline the Funding Opportunities that we are going to make available to the people of Greater Cincinnati.

Attached you will find 4 one-pagers that outline the various funding opportunities.

In addition, the link below will take you to our website where you can find an informational video and additional resources relative to the People’s Liberty funding opportunities.

People’s Liberty is a philanthropic lab that brings together civic-minded talent to address challenges and uncover opportunities to accelerate the positive transformation of Greater Cincinnati. People’s Liberty invests directly in individuals through funding and mentorship, creating a new, replicable model for grantmakers in other cities. People’s Liberty will open at the Globe Building in historic Findlay Market in January 2015. Follow our blog (and obligatory social media channels) for frequent updates. Haile Fellowship applications are now available!

Please review the attached documents as well as the website, and let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or comments.

Our hope would be that you would share these documents with your entire network. We need all of Greater Cincinnati to know about these opportunities, and you can help serve as our conduit.

We want these funding opportunities to be shared far and wide, so as to allow everyone in our region an opportunity to compete for the funding.

If you would like to discuss these in person or over the phone, someone from our team would be more to do so.

This is the Annual ReLeaf info from the Urban Forestry Department of the City of Cincinnati. Please read all the information carefully and submit the Request Form if interested.
Many of our large oak trees have been cut down in the past year so this is a great time to ReLeaf our neighborhood. If you have any questions, please call Urban Forestry at 513.861.9070 and ask to speak to one of individuals in charge of the ReLeaf program. 

On Monday, Sept. 22, from 6 to 8 p.m., the League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area (LWVCA) and the Cincinnati Bar Association are sponsoring a program to inform the voting public about the functions of the Common Pleas court and provide an opportunity to meet and hear from candidates for judge on the ballot in November.

We ask that you share this event with your neighborhood community council. A flyer and more information are attached.

The LWVCA works to educate voters in Hamilton County. In November 2012, 40 percent of Ohioans who cast a ballot skipped voting in judicial races mainly because they lacked information about the judiciary and judicial candidates. 

We hope you will take the opportunity to help us encourage voters to learn about this important office. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
