Saint Luke's Foundation

A Strong Neighborhood

We catalyze and sustain opportunities to improve social conditions and improve the physical environments in Mt. Pleasant, Woodland Hills,and Buckeye.

 

The Strong Neighborhood program strategy reflects Saint Luke’s Foundation’s core commitment to engage residents and organizations in planning and actions that build a stronger, more vibrant neighborhood surrounding Saint Luke’s Pointe.

We focus on partnering with residents, community-based organizations and public/private partners to enhance the built environments and to improve social conditions.
