CommYOUnity Block Party at Champaign Park Apartments

On August 4, 2022, the Neighborhood Services Department hosted a neighborhood-based CommYOUnity block party at the Champaign Park Apartments. Employees from the Equity and Engagement Department also assisted with the event. More than 100 neighbors enjoyed an evening of food, fun, and games, as well as music provided by DJ Silkee. Resource and information vendors included representatives from the Community Violence Response Team, the Trauma and Resilience Initiative, DREAAM, Courage Connection, and the Housing Authority of Champaign County’s YouthBuild Program.
