Empowering Communities, One Event at a Time: Jair Lynch’s January 2023 Resident Engagement Recap

Welcome to our monthly blog series where we highlight Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners’ commitment to empowering communities through resident engagement events. In January 2023, our property management partners hosted a variety of events across our communities ranging from financial literacy to food security and fitness. At Jair Lynch, we believe in the power of community building and the impact it can have on residents’ lives. Through events that bring residents together, we aim to foster a sense of belonging and provide opportunities for personal growth and development. In this blog post, we will share some highlights and photos from our January 2023 resident engagement events, showcasing the power of community building and the ways in which Jair Lynch is committed to empowering communities and residents.

This month, the Gates Hudson property management team at Barcroft Apartments hosted multiple events including a special remembrance pop-up in honor of Martin Luther King Day and a free financial literacy event.

To celebrate Martin Luther King Day, an informational pop-up display was created to showcase the life and legacy of this important civil rights leader. The display included copies of MLK’s famous speeches, including “I Have a Dream” for residents to take home, along with mini pecan pies for residents to enjoy in salute to MLK’s favorite dessert. Over 75 residents engaged with this special display.

Later in the month, a financial literacy event, Budgeting and Financial Health for 2023, was held to provide residents with a free educational seminar about household budgeting best practices. Led by a personal finance advisor from Wyzant Financial Advisors, the session also highlighted free website budgeting tools residents could use in their personal finance practices. This event was a great opportunity for residents to learn practical skills to help them improve their financial health and plan for their futures. Over 60 residents attended this seminar and the Barcroft team intends to host more of these events in the future. At Jair Lynch, we believe in empowering communities through educational opportunities like this one.

The property management team at Fields at Cascades hosted a free food truck meal giveaway in mid-January. Despite the chilly, rainy weather that day, over 115 residents enjoyed free meals of chicken alfredo with pasta and vegetables from Coastal Beach Truck, a non-profit food truck based in Northern Virginia that offers fresh, hot meals to food-insecure neighborhoods. Given the event’s success, the Fields at Cascades team intends to host more food trucks on site throughout the year. 

Phoenix Apartments, Bladensburg, MD

In late January, the property management team at Phoenix Apartments hosted a Sip & Paint event that provided paint supplies, snacks, and refreshments for residents as they connected with neighbors, expressed their creativity, and strengthened relationships with property management staff. Over a dozen residents attended this event. At Jair Lynch, we believe that building comradery and connection between neighbors and property management staff is key to strengthening a community, and small-scale, intimate events like this help to make those goals a reality.

Our January 2023 resident engagement events at Barcroft Apartments, Phoenix Apartments, and Fields at Cascades were a great success, and we were thrilled to see our residents come together to learn, grow, and connect with one another. From financial literacy events to MLK Day pop-ups, our community events create opportunities for personal growth, education, and connection. We are proud to offer these events as part of our ongoing efforts to build thriving communities that support residents’ needs and aspirations. We will continue to empower communities through resident engagement events in the months ahead.
