On Saturday, June 23rd, LUCHA hosted the 1st of 5 Playstreets celebrations on the 1400 block of N. Artesian Ave. At a Playstreets celebration, the streets are closed off for fun and healthy activities and provide safe places for residents to be outdoors during the summer. Having teamed up with Gads Hill Center, volunteers and staff helped organize the day with a bounce house, Zumba instruction, healthy snacks, and face painting! Playstreets is an extension of LUCHA’s Plan de Acción de Salud designed to provide holistic, healthy services to our residents and community members in ways that help our neighborhood thrive. Check out our calendar of future Playstreets events and come out and play this summer!
LUCHA publicly debuted Sandra Puebla at Playstreets as our Summer Americorps VISTA. Sandra will continue to work alongside the Resident Services team on Health and Wellness initiatives and tenant programming throughout the summer. Read more
