On September 27, 2016 the “Neighbor Revolution” officially launched. What started out as a dream birthed out of the success of one block club, became a reality with four new block connectors committing to starting block clubs on their blocks.
We are so thankful to these connectors who accepted the challenge of strengthening our community one block at a time. We want to officially thank:
|Michael Lease||2800 block of Hawthorne Avenue|
|Maria Carra Rose||2700 block of Edgewood Avenue|
|Ollie Hill||5300 block of Troy Road|
|Trayce Colbert-Morris||3000 block of Moss Side Avenue|
Research proves that neighborhoods where neighbors are connected, invested and in-control of their community are the ones that thrive.
Block connectors perform four critical foundations.
Connect with their immediate neighbors
Asset map those on their block
Release neighborhood gifts through action teams
Educate their neighbors about community building opportunities
