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.

A Celebration of Culture – Josh Caballero

If you drive down North 25th Street, it doesn’t take you long to recognize the specific culture that exists along the corridor. Small businesses like El Pollo del Rey, Casa Bonita, Yasmeen’s Boutique, 25th Street Plaza, Tortillera Bustos, and La Nueva Michoacana just to name a few line the corridor and accentuate the Latino culture that dominates the area. But it’s not the name of the stores or the products or services you’re able to get from them that highlight the Latino culture along the corridor, it’s the people. It’s the entrepreneurs working hard to make their businesses a success. It’s the business leaders along the corridor who want to see the area improve and work hard to see that happen. It’s the sense of community as people help each other out and work together to make 25th Street a thriving business district and retail destination in Waco. We invite you to come and experience what our friends and neighbors are doing along 25th Street for yourself.

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.
