What We Do

Wellness

We’re creating spaces & opportunity for our neighborhood to participate in caring for our community through workgroups, meetings, events, and programs that promote wellness and community leadership, and civic engagement.

Work

We’re transforming unused spaces into productive gardens, parks & healthy community spaces. We employ 20 staff year round in green jobs that beautify the community, train community members in green infrastructure, and grow youth leadership.

Wealth

We’re collaborating across sectors to bring investment back to the North Avenue Commercial Corridor through development projects, social enterprise, entrepreneurial support of residents, and, attract housing resources.

Our mission is to sustain transformation by advancing an economically diverse and abundant community through civic engagement, environmental stewardship, and creating venues for prosperity.
