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.

Board of Directors

The Grassroots Community Development Board of Directors is made up of a diverse group of people that reside and work in the neighborhoods of North, South, and East Waco as well as neighboring areas. Each board member brings a perspective related to their experiences that support their commitment and passion in continuing to develop communities and building a brighter and healthy future for families and children. The Board meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month to work together on long term strategic planning initiatives and to monitor the progress of the strategic plan.
