This week, over 7,300 households in the Skyway-West Hill area will receive our latest print mailer, rounding up some of the most exciting news stories of 2021 for our organization and the community.
A Letter to the Community, from WHCA Co-chair Jeannie Williams
It is my hope that this newsletter finds everyone healthy and safe. 2021 has been a busy year and many great things lie ahead for Skyway-West Hill and WHCA. Although there were challenges, the community showed a strong resilience and always came through to support each other and the community as a whole.
The collaboration and work in Skyway-West Hill has begun on the Resource Center project as well as conversations regarding the community center and affordable housing projects.
In 2021, WHCA marked 30 years of service and made some very important changes to align and support the community. WHCA began to organize as the Community Development Association for Skyway-West Hill along with reemphasizing our mission by highlighting our equity and collaboration principles. In 2022, WHCA will be focused on recruitment to build our board as well as doing the work to build a successful CDA along with continuing many of the other great events the community looks forward to from WHCA.
We would love to invite anyone interested in being part of building the new vision for WHCA to contact us. Other ways to support WHCA would be to follow us on social media and our website as well as participate in our monthly (board and committee) meetings.
Well wishes to all and looking forward to a great 2022!
WHCA Board Co-chair
