The purpose of the 16th Street Neighborhood Association’s Block Captain program is to facilitate and enhance communication and cooperation between neighbors. A Block Captain is a volunteer who serves as a liaison between the 16th Street Neighborhood Association and the residents on the Captain’s block.  Block Captains have two main responsibilities: (1) to distribute the Neighborhood Association’s quarterly newsletter to households on the Captain’s block; and (2) to identify seniors on the Captain’s block who might need support from the Neighborhood Association with household maintenance, such as snow shoveling, or other matters. If you are interested in becoming a Block Captain or Co-Captain, please contact Carrie Beaudreau at
