The Trenton Neighborhood Initiative takes a two-pronged approach to supporting residents as they Live, Work, Grow, and Connect. One, we develop and offer services to support the residents of the North Trenton neighborhoods surrounding the Capital Health Regional Medical Center. Two, we promote strategic solutions for change citywide.
