Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

2018 Annual Report

Since our beginning, we have concentrated on helping people at the grassroots level by helping families make their schools stronger, counseling and assisting families to become homeowners,  revitalizing our neighborhoods by building new homes and connecting service groups to repair existing homes, and by teaching community leadership classes.

Because of our grassroots efforts throughout Waco, we changed our name to Grassroots Community Development.  Our revised mission statement better reflects what we value in our community and where we focus our efforts and reads “We are committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.”  We continue to expand our efforts.  Thanks to a generous grant from the Cooper Foundation and our continued support from the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Foundation, we added a Community Organizer for South Waco.  We are fully engaged in North Waco, East Waco and South Waco.  Community support to us is vital.  We trust this Annual Report will reflect the great work being accomplished by Grassroots Community Development due to your support.

– Mike Stone, Executive Director

Last Friday was a busy time of celebratory events in East Waco. JH Hines hosted a Muffins for Moms event, where over 100 moms, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, and mother figures attended. Community partners and other volunteers also showed up to support this effort.
At the same time, just across West Waco Drive, was the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new GW Carver Middle School. Alumni, current students and staff, public officials,Waco ISD, residents and other community members gathered for this historical event. We enjoyed being able to participate and support these exciting moments.
