Mission Statement

The mission of Morningside Gardens Neighbors is to advocate for accountability and good governance for the Morningside Heights Housing Corporation, our community and home. Our vision is based on our understanding of community as a network of mutually helpful relationships in which one can trust. We pledge to act with empathy, grace and inclusion.

Our work will be guided by the following three principles:

  • Detailed, fact-based analysis;

  • Governance procedures based on transparency of decision-making by board, management, vendors, and advisors;

  • Communication with cooperators throughout the process of making important decisions that will invite their engagement.

Among our first steps will be to try to support and strengthen our Building Organizations for participation, inquiry and debate in order to engage our neighbors.
