We work to enhance neighborhood investment, revitalization activities and strive for self sufficiency of families in need.

The Methuen Arlington Neighborhood is a densely populated, low to moderate income area located close to the City of Lawrence. Sharing the same problems as Lawrence - poverty, lack of employment opportunities, and social ills - this area is able to receive some financial assistance due to the fact that Methuen is a small cities mini-entitlement area. To begin formally working on improving the quality of life in the area, neighborhood residents formed a Community Developement Corporation (CDC), the Methuen Arlington Neighborhood, Inc. (M.A.N., Inc.). In March of 1995, this organization became incorporated as M.A.N. Inc. The neighborhood is also the site of the Department of Justice's Weed and Seed Program. 

 

M.A.N. Inc's prime target area for the purpose of representation and service is within the Town of Methuen, primarily within the borders of the Spicket River, Horne Street, Lawrence Street, and the Lawrence City Line of Center Street.
