What We Do

Putting the ‘neighbor’ back in neighborhoods.

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.

Renew Birmingham is a faith-based collective impact organization currently focusing on the Ensley neighborhood with strategic plans to extend our reach throughout the Greater Birmingham area.

Ways We Help

Providing the help people need.

At Renew Birmingham, we’re not in this to provide a few programs and move the needle a little bit. We’re here to make lasting cultural change. We want to change the way our neighbors think about themselves, their community, and their futures. We want them to embrace self-determination and realize that working together, they can revitalize their neighborhoods and look toward a brighter, healthier tomorrow.
