A seat at the table

Fountain Park and Lewis Place are two historic neighborhoods in North St. Louis, shut out from opportunities for wealth building but held up by the determination and drive of our neighbors. We are a place-based community development organization committeed to comprehensive revitalization of our communities.

An opportunity to thrive

Our community has an historic opportunity to leverage new interest in our area to bring new resources into our community.  Our mission is to promote healthy, mixed income communities where everyone has an opportunity to thrive. 

Community at the center

Real community development takes a village. We are a community-run organization, meaning we are committed to ensuring the participation of our neighbors at every level. That’s why we have reserved a majority of seats on our Board of Directors and all neighborhood committees for residents of Fountain Park and Lewis Place. This ensures that we remain accountable for the long haul and that we remain accountable to each other. There are a lot of ways to get involved, so we'd like to invite you to join us.

Stay informed!

Not everyone has time for a committee, but we want to make sure you are in the loop! In addition to our newsletter, we host neighborhood meetings once every two months to share progress on our work in the community.
