Committed to helping our neighborhoods to thrive...
The Urban Collaborative Project is an inclusive effort through Community outreach, by neighborhoods, Town Councils and other neighborhood stakeholders to make safety, civic engagement, health and beautification, a neighborhood practice, making our communities more vibrant, informed and connected. All premised on the belief that vibrant neighborhoods are critical to the overall success of our City.
Major areas of focus for us is Community Trauma and Resilience which includes Trauma informed Policies, K-12 school support, Healthy Food access, Community infrastructure/Placemaking, Family Support and enhancement, Resident Leadership Training, and inter-organizational Action Teams.
Through our continued Self Healing Community model, we have begun to have our community identify indicators, prioritize them and begin working on solutions through working together and measuring our progress.
