Following an arson in 2012, HMI and founder Cathy Ostrum Swarmer, took on the project of rebuilding the playground equipment in her childhood playground in Prospect Park.

Through private donations, grants from local sports clubs and other local agencies, as well as the national with Dr. Pepper and Snapple, HMI was able to raise over 60,000 in two years. The equipment from 1949 was replaced with new modern and safe playground equipment in October 2014.
