The event took place in the Perkins neighborhood which is part of the PSO  (collectively Perkins,  Somerset and Oldtown) neighborhood.  Residents who live here will benefit from the $30 Million Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant.  HABC is a recipient of this grant which focuses on housing, neighborhood and people.
