Roseanna’s unwavering commitment to “The Take Action Society” goes above and beyond what is expected of a Chair of an organization. Not only is she the Chair, CEO, TA Leader, Program Coordinator, Youth Care Leader, Hub Coordinator, Garden Coordinator, Community Advocate, etc., she is also a participant of the SAC, the “Youth bringing Unity for Community” Committee, the Dartmouth North Association (DNA), the DNA Education Committee, as well as the “Between the Bridges” project. The scope of this initiative has been extensive and has required the creation of various working committees. Due to Roseanna’s determination, participation, and strength she has been a huge asset in assisting in focusing on policy change and challenges identified by residents to improve conditions for children, youth and their families. Roseanna is also a participating member of the “Between the Bridges” Residents Round Table, Student Success Alignment Team, as well as the Strategic Round Table; and has participated in the UW Poverty Solutions Project. Roseanna has brought many residents together in order to create “The Take Action Society” Outdoor Classroom and Community Garden, located behind Harbour View Elementary School, as well as the Northbrook Community Orchard, and is currently in the stages of expanding the community garden into the Lahey Rd. area, as well as collaborating the construction of a year-round greenhouse. With the support of many; friends and families could go and have fun while staying active during the winter as they skated on the Community Ice Rink. She has brought over 300 residents together to create the “Home is where the HeART is” Mural located at the entrance of Harbour View School, as well as the “Do the Right Thing” community theme project. With the Tidal Impact Group partnership, a “Kindness Rock Garden” was created to help build self-esteem and to encourage random acts of kindness. Due to the many barriers to students meeting the educational outcomes, Roseanna along with multiple other organizations and service providers created “The Food for Youth Task Force” to provide the students and residents with access, knowledge and tools to tackle food security issues faced in our community. Roseanna continues to support and encourage environmental leadership here in Dartmouth North by organizing and leading community cleanups for the past 10 years. And on top of all of that, she has found the time to assist in the expansion of the “Take Action” Group into the Demetreous Lane Community Center. Roseanna thrives on providing opportunities for the residents to become more involved; and inspires and encourages residents to obtain the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools in order to break the vicious cycle of poverty.
