ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

OVERVIEW

We envision a safe, healthy, just, and nurturing Ironbound, a welcoming and fully inclusive community that supports equal and accessible opportunity and the quest for a better life.  To support healthy, wholesome child and family development, we provide essential high quality services.  However, early in in our history, and especially through our Health Project in the early 1970s which alerted us to Ironbound’s poor air quality and how it triggers asthma, we realized that high quality services were not enough.  How do children grow in the healthiest way when they do not have clean air to breathe, parks to play in, or adequate school facilities that are not overcrowded and built in the 1800s?

ICC’s founders envisioned a better world for their children, and today we carry on that legacy for future generations.
