History

NINA is the Northside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance, and we are a not-for-profit corporation organized in 2003 to foster the revitalization of Hartford's Asylum Hill neighborhood. NINA is a collaborative effort of four major institutions - Aetna, The Hartford, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, and Webster Bank - that work together with residents and other community stakeholders to revitalize Asylum Hill. Our mission is to serve as a catalyst for reinvestment in Asylum Hill by enhancing public safety, homeownership, economic development, and education throughout the neighborhood.

Since 2003, we have rehabilitated 18 historic houses and constructed one new house. We have worked throughout this time with our member institutions as well as our partners. Currently, we are at work on a mixed-used building and a second new home.
