Our Partners

NETWORK OF DOERS

A city will thrive only when the needs of its most vulnerable residents are considered and cared for. Together, with like-minded partners, we are dismantling systemic barriers, solution-finding as a collective, and building community trust and confidence. These partnerships have been strategically formed to target eight focus areas: Arts + Culture, Civic Engagement, Education, Health, Neighborhood, Safety, Transportation, and Workforce + Economic Development.

Eight Focus Areas

Arts + Culture

Celebrate history and diversity through the beautification of public spaces and the organic development of creative networks.

Civic Engagement

Grassroots advocacy for policy and problem-solving, which benefits residents of all backgrounds.

Education

Link educational opportunities with learners of all ages and interests, by employing a variety of avenues for engagement.

Health

Address the social, economic, and environmental determinants of health to generate thriving communities.

Neighborhood

Build safe, sustainable, and healthy housing accessible to all essential neighborhood amenities.

Safety

Cultivate community trust and prioritize safety in design, to promote secure and protected spaces.

Transportation

Connect people and places in multi-modal, safe, and accessible ways.

Workforce + Economic Development

Generate local wealth, support entrepreneurs, and bridge the divide between workforce and opportunity.
