The Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC), is an interactive information and service center that is funded by the Office of Housing and Community Development. The Partnership CDC is the officeâ€™s fiscal agent.Â Primarily, we guide people to city services. We also promote civic participation. We are the mediators for all community matters.
Established in 1978 to address the need for quality, affordable housing in the Mantua neighborhood, Mount Vernon Manor additionally serves as a hub for ongoing revitalization efforts and most recently co-sponsored the ambitiousÂ Mantua Transformation Plan. Led by Michael Thorpe, Executive Director, Mt. Vernon Manor continues the legacy of the Mantua Community Planners and other like-minded civic agencies in the continued improvement of Mantuaâ€™s community infrastructure.
The mission of Mount Vernon Manor is to provide affordable housing opportunities whileÂ supporting and encouraging parents to nurture children, foster strongÂ families, and champion a robust andÂ sustainable quality of life.
