When it comes to revitalizing underserved neighborhoods, external intervention rarely works. For real change to happen, the spark must come from within. Residents must be empowered, inspired, and motivated to work together to revitalize their communities and improve their lives. Then, and only then, does real, lasting change happen.
We have boots on the ground. We're investing our time, energy, intellectual capital, and money. We are determined to help our neighbors join together to revitalize their neighborhoods and build healthy, sustainable communities. Along with our partners, we are working to end the cycle of violence, substance abuse, poverty, and blight for our most vulnerable residents.
