The Gateway Family YMCA (TGFYMCA) is leading this two-year project to advance civic engagement in Elizabeth through solicitations for Neighborhood Project stipends and strategic Play Streets programming to increase utilization of existing parks. In addition, TGFYMCA is working to increase data sharing among its partner organizations through a common system. The Gateway Family YMCA and its key partners in the Shaping Elizabeth coalition, including the City of Elizabeth, Trinitas Regional Medical Center, the Housing Authority City of Elizabeth, Elizabeth Public Schools, the Community Food Bank, the Elizabeth Public Library, Groundwork Elizabeth and Rutgers Cooperative Extension, have identified these priorities through their ongoing efforts to improve community health. By the end of this project, Shaping Elizabeth will have equipped its partners and community members with the tools and skills to have their voices heard by local, county and state policy makers.
