LHENA grew out of conversation between neighbors. Fifteen residents gathered on August 4, 1970, to discuss the neighborhood and issues of the times. Agreeing that this is a "good place to live," and with a desire to support "the positive values of city living," they connected with others and formally established LHENA on February 18th, 1971.
Since then, neighbors have used LHENA as a platform to create Mueller Park, organize cleanups, support the children of Jefferson School, establish an Organics Recycling Drop-off program for renters, host countless potlucks and get-togethers, and many other things. There have been successes and failures, and things have been more active at some times than others. Throughout we have remained a presence in the neighborhood and today, we hope to be a means for neighbors to use their heart, head, and hands for positive community change.
