Urban Neighborhood Initiative - Our Work

Early on, UNI Neighborhood residents identified three work areas as most important to revitalizing their communities - health and safety, prosperity and quality education. These guidelines have led us to focus on three large initiatives. We accomplish our work through collaborations with the neighborhood associations, businesses and nonprofits with UNI typically serving as the ‘quarterback’ organization.

  • Transforming Vacant Spaces to Vibrant Places (V2V)
  • Purpose Built Communities
