A new community initiative was launched today in one East Alabama county. The new community movement is called “Friend of LYN” and it was launched this morning in Etowah County. “LYN” stands for Love Your Neighbor. The initiative calls on the community to address the unmet needs of individuals, groups and communities throughout the county. The “LYN” initiative hopes to encourage a more deliberate and focused effort to fully engage resources to address new solutions. The “Friend of LYN” initiative plans to address issues like Job Creation, Education and Housing among many others. The plan has been put together through a partnership with the Etowah County Community Action Agency. You can find out more about the “LYN” project online at communityactionetowahco.org.
