The ASPIRA Stakeholders Community Group

For over 13 years, the community group known as the “Hunting Park Stakeholders” met monthly under the leadership of ASPIRA to discuss the issues that most affect our community — and to work together for real solutions. While the name of the program has changed to the “ASPIRA Stakeholders Community Group,” we remain strong in our commitment to addressing and solving issues such as school absence, domestic violence, drug abuse and many more. This group also serves as an avenue for communication among people from the entire Hunting Park area in order to ensure that our community members are benefiting from the work of the local government. Follow ASPIRA, Inc. of Pennsylvania on Facebook for regular updates and meeting times to be part of our efforts. You can also email mpabon@aspirapa.org for more information.
