An equitable community is sharing values of diversity, social justice, and individual empowerment, within the neighborhood, where neighbors are treated with fairness and justice, have access to basic needs, and strive for equal opportunities for all.

The Dana Hill neighborhood & The Cambridge Beta Fish Project has selected The Cambridge Rehabilitation & Nursing Care Center to be the fist group in the community to begin this project.

The goal is to bring the youth and the aging together by sharing the gift of Beta Fish. The fish are a companion for the residents of CRNC.
