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.

Community Engagement

Grassroots Leadership Training

This is a leadership development program that seeks to equip neighborhood leaders to engage in their community in meaningful ways by working with others and existing community assets to address community needs. The first phase of the GLT program is a training that provides information regarding community assets, leadership and communication skills, and culture and diversity. During the second phase, our community organizers provide ongoing consultation to our leadership training graduates to ensure that they have the necessary resources to carry out their action plans in the community.

Community-led Action Plans

This program focuses on bringing community leaders in various sectors

together to identify community concerns and develop action plans that can be implemented to address those concerns. Through this program, residents within neighborhoods develop their own community solutions based upon their understanding of their community.
