Latham St. Commons

We are building a resilient and sustainable ecosystem of people working together to address all of the factors affecting access to good health—social support, health care, education, diet, employment, air and water quality.



The course will utilize social innovation principles and practices while striving to bring sustainable solutions to a grassroots community space through a series of integrated strategies. The initiative—Latham St. Commons is a newly formed non-profit social enterprise. They dream of being a learning laboratory where neighbors go to build relationships with each other and their surroundings, so the community, as a whole, can discover healthy ways of living that work for them. Their goal is to provide both social and economic opportunities through a variety of programming, community health services, teaching facilities and rental units to shelter new social enterprises.
