Northwest Project Woodland Heights Maintenance Classes @ Springfield Dream Center

Northwest Project Woodland Heights Maintenance Classes @ Springfield Dream Center | Springfield | Missouri | United States

Northwest Project maintenance classes meet at the Dream Center on Wednesday nights. Childcare provided. Dinner starts at 5:30 p.m., with classes starting at 6.

The goal of The Northwest Project is to pilot strategies over a five-year period to help families overcome the challenges that have kept them living in poverty and sustain their long-term success in emerging from those circumstances. The project includes a focus on 10 key areas for stability. Areas include: accountability, parent training, reliable transportation, affordable housing, quality childcare, budgeting/banking, financial planning, job training/education, resolved legal issues, and health and wellbeing.

The Community Foundation of the Ozarks selected northwest Springfield for this project because much of the area exceeds the city’s overall 25.6 percent poverty rate. In addition, the privately funded Northwest Project will take place in concert with the City of Springfield’s focus on improving public safety, infrastructure and chronic nuisance properties in this geographic area.

The Northwest Project is a collaboration among Missouri State University, Drury University, and Drew Lewis Foundation.

Woodland Heights Neighborhood Cleanup @ Reed Academy
Apr 27 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm

Residents and/or property owners in the Woodland Heights neighborhood are invited to participate in the spring neighborhood cleanup. The City and the neighborhood association encourages residents to take advantage of this free and convenient opportunity to dispose of trash, brush and metal. Residents are encouraged to address overgrown fence rows, backyards and alleys adjacent to your property by mowing, cutting down, trimming and disposing of all brush and related debris.

Each year, neighborhood clean-ups serve approximately 900 households and remove over 175 tons of bulk waste (furniture, mattresses, etc.) and brush from Springfield neighborhoods. The cleanups take place outside, rain or shine. Curbside pickup is available, however, fees may apply.

Need to arrange a curbside pickup? Contact Becky Volz at 417-880-4210.
