Getting Residents Engaged in Exercise and Nutrition- GREEN


Madison Park Neighborhood Association (MPNA) established in 1987 as a grassroots, resident-driven organization; we became a non-profit in 2009. In 2011 MPNA launched the Getting Residents Engaged in Exercise and Nutrition (GREEN) program at James Madison Elementary School. GREEN is a part of the Building Healthy Communities Initiative through generous support from The California Endowment.


Our organization works to improve the quality of life for all residents in the Madison Park neighborhood and the surrounding South-East Santa Ana communities. GREEN promotes health and wellness, with an emphasis on exercise, nutrition, youth educational development, safe environments, and community empowerment.
