We are a community development organization to work with residents and stakeholders to revitalize the neighborhood and improve the quality of life of our residents. We take our cues from residents in setting priorities, understanding the issues, and working together toward solutions.
Cleaning up and securing abandoned, blighted houses and using art as a tool for community development
Advocating for quality rental properties and promoting home ownership
Securing funding to help residents plant trees, fix broken up sidewalks and repair front porches
Supporting residents leading projects with their neighbors to improve the look and feel of our blocks
Working with residents and stakeholders to develop a comprehensive neighborhood improvement plan
Empowering residents with information and resources for quality, safe and energy efficient housing
Coordinating relief efforts with residents and stakeholders, focusing on food distribution, mental health supports, financial assistance, and closing the digital divide
Capturing the stories of residents who have made an impact in the community across the city and highlighting historically significant places as points of pride
Engaging and supporting existing community gardeners and helping residents start gardens and pocket parks
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions within our community. Your generous donations fortify our foundation, infrastructure and facilitate change in our community. Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago. Help us plant the seeds of change.
