Who NINA Is
Frankly Asked Questions
NINA typically runs two homeownership projects and several community-oriented programs each year.
29 Ashley Street
A single-family home that was damaged by fire -- NINA plans to restore it to its original footprint.
80-82 Hawthorn Street
The next phase of our Hartford Heritage Homes project: we're building 2 more townhomes on the formerly vacant lot that Aetna gave to us. These will match the homes at 86 & 88 Hawthorn, and they'll complete our work at this location.
847 Asylum Avenue
The Linus Plimpton House -- not built in 1884, that's when Linus bought it -- but more likely built in 1863. An intact Victorian house that we will develop as an owner-occupied three-family, or something else.
Homeowner Incentive Program
We're working with several partners in the community to analyze a wealth of historic and current data on public safety and the quality of life in Asylum Hill. Our working hypothesis is that abandoned motor vehicles may predict future blight and crime hot spots.
TeacherDollars awarded NINA a substantial grant to purchase school supplies and books for the students at West Middle Community School. NINA worked with teachers at the school to develop a wish list, and the funding arrived at a critical time, as the school's response to the pandemic required that students have a set of supplies for school and for home. Books focused on racial and social justice.
