How to Help

Do you support our vision for a community free from blight?

Every person has a role to play in the fight against blighted properties, and we can only overcome this issue with a community-wide effort. Your role in this fight can take on many forms and should reflect the skills that only you can bring to our mission. Revitalized buildings, community gardens, and pocket parks can always bring a spark of life to communities. However, boarding up vacant structures, mowing abandoned lots, and cleaning up litter are also imperative to stabilizing and rebuilding communities. Links to resources to advance your mission in addressing blighted properties are listed below. If you have any questions, please reach out to Jasmine Bowden at
