The East Flatbush Community Development Corporation had the pleasure of partnering with the East Flatbush Community Partnership on its Heard at Home initiative, on October 18, 2022. Residents of East Flatbush were surveyed about their community concerns. The initiative connects people to elected officials and key resources in the community based on those needs with an overall goal of community/civic engagement, which is shared by both organizations.
