The Greater North End Community Development, Inc., formerly known as North End Crime Watch & Community Development, Inc., was started in 1994 by Reverend Joshua A. McClure, Pete Pelchat and Tom Daniewicz to protect and revitalize Westerly's North End. GNECD's board members come from many backgrounds and they encourage all "North Enders" to come to the Open Meetings and get involved. Please contact us with your comments, suggestions or concerns.
Our mission is to preserve and revitalize the cultural, social and historic character of the greater North End of Westerly through arts and educational initiatives for children and adults; to advocate for affordable housing and secure neighborhoods: to seek resources for families and the underprivileged; and to collaborate with social service, civic, and other organizations to these ends.
Restore safety, security and pride in Westerly's North End.
Implement an affordable housing program without increasing density by rehabilitating existing properties.
Offer rehabilitated properties to qualified buyers by facilitating the process of securing afford-able housing.
Provide support services for individual families and the community at large.
