Hands on Neighborhoods

Logo for Hands On Neighborhoods, featuring two hands and an outline of a house, above the words "nurturing neighborhoods, building community."

Our Mission

To empower community members in building a sense of pride in place; to leverage resources, and work together towards strengthening neighborhoods while building community, both on the block, and through-out the city. By hosting local community clean up events, we are working to help residents make connections and share resources, by providing opportunities to meet local leaders and offering information about city resources and housing.
