Green Education for Youth
MHP has been offering Green Clubs for young people for many years, giving them an opportunity to promote recycling initiatives in their neighborhoods and create and nurture community gardens.
Students in MHP’s Community Life programs are learning more about nature and their environment through a collaboration with Nature Forward (formerly the Audubon Naturalist Society), including field trips to the Woodend site, which includes a pond and forested area.
MHP has won recognition as a NeighborWorks Green Organization by demonstrating a comprehensive commitment to sustainable operations. MHP focuses its real estate development activity on meeting Enterprise Green Communities standards through energy-efficient upgrades and use of green building products and processes throughout its multi-family portfolio.
MHP has been recognized by the National Association of Counties (NACo) for our work helping residents improve their homes’ efficiency and reduce their energy costs. Read more here.
MHP sponsors annual Earth Day cleanup activities in several neighborhoods, including Long Branch and North Wheaton. In collaboration with the Long Branch Business League, monthly cleanups are held in the Long Branch business district.
