Central Area Neighborhood Development Organization (CANDO) is a community driven neighborhood organization. All activities are developed and executed by those who live and work in Central neighborhood. CANDO is run under democratic process and while we understand that whomever participates makes final decisions, we hold the value that those who participate are empathetic and understanding in that their decisions effect many people. We encourage continued education for everyone in our community in the areas of culture, community dynamics, economic development, government and housing. We strive to provide opportunity for growth through learning for all. We as a community invest in the whole of Central neighborhood.
