To address the quality of life in the West End,
To build trust and a spirit of community,
To protect the diverse character of our neighborhoods,
To identify needs and concerns of residents and business partners, and
To provide a way for those needs and concerns to be addressed.
The Association is active in supporting programs at the Reiche Community Center.
We raise funds to pay for swimming lessons for all 4th & 5th graders at Reiche School.
We fund open swims for neighborhood children during the summer at the Reiche pool.
We participate in Neighborhood Watch, Adopt-A-Block and Neighborhood Clean-ups.
We strive to maintain the West End as a clean, safe, quiet and attractive neighborhood.
