General mission and nature of organization
The mission of the Junction Coalition is to provide a viable voice to our neighbors and to cultivate healthy relationships throughout the community. The Junction Coalition seeks to promote healthy relationships with local, state, and federal government to build a better quality of life for community members and for business owners who benefit the Junction community.
Junction Coalition plans to garner participation from local neighborhood residents in the development of programs to deal with the needs of the particular urban environment of the neighborhood: housing abandonment and demolition, land use and redevelopment, programs for our youth, workforce development and training, the safety of our children, and business revitalization.
All of the Junction Coalition’s activities will be conducted in a specific geographic area of Toledo, Ohio. This area is sometimes referred to as the Junction neighborhood, or Junction community. The neighborhood is bounded on the West at Brown Avenue, on the East at Division Street, on the North at Dorr Street, and on the South at Klondike Street.
