P.E.E.R., Inc. (Promoting Empowerment and Enrichment Resources) is a community development group designed to draw resources and provide information and education concerning existing resources to the South East Lake neighborhood. Our objectives include: 1. Community health initiatives 2. Partnerships with the area schools, businesses, churches, and civic clubs to increase access to resources 3. Promotion of economic development and revitalization of homes and businesses. In many ways, the South East Lake neighborhood is a resource-rich and information-poor area. Our hope is to work together with the "anchor" agencies and institutions in the area-libraries, churches, hospitals, banks, etc.- to connect people with the resources they need.
