The Holly City Development Corporation (HCDC) is leading this two-year project to build a healthier community by increasing civic engagement among Millville’s Center City residents through approaches that build residents’ skills in identifying and advocating for change to the policy, systems or environmental changes they find important. HCDC and its key partners in the Millville Neighborhood Alliance, including the Millville Board of Education, the Millville Public Library, the First United Methodist Church, and the Holly City Family Success Center, are working to deploy a team of community builders, form action committees, and extend the Community Counts initiative. In the first year of this work, Center City community members adopted a 10-year neighborhood plan and mobilized around their initial priorities. Through this project, the Alliance is engaging Center City families in identifying and addressing community needs.
