We invite all our neighbors, homeowners and renters alike, to join our association. While everyone is welcome to participate in all HEN events and meetings, joining the association allows you to have voice during HEN elections. Membership dues also help cover the cost of public flowerbeds, our historic street signs, and other neighborhood necessities.
Dues are $25 per person (or $50 per household) and can be paid at the next neighborhood event. You may make your dues donation securely via PayPal using the button below:

- Hold regular board meetings
- Communicate with all residents through Facebook, a listserv, gatherings, and our website in an effort to reach all our neighbors
- Hold special fundraisers, like home and/or garden tours, to help defray members’ dues
- Support neighborhood watch and crime prevention meetings to foster a safer neighborhood
- Maintain our historic street signs as the city does not
- Support worthwhile programs such as St. Ann’s Summer Program for children and Hope Exchange
