Our mission is to empower a thriving cultural neighborhood with equitable access to economic opportunity, housing, and healthy food. Currently, our areas of focus are: public safety, food justice, economic development, and youth education & employment.
We've been in the neighborhood since 2014, having dubbed ourselves the 'stewards of the Rainier Beach Neighborhood Plan.' This plan and subsequent plan update features the ideas put forth by RB residents to facilitate sustainable economic development in Rainier Beach. Our work is aimed at facilitating the neighborhood capacity-building initiatives in that plan by supporting the development of resources alongside resident-led neighborhood efforts and by facilitating alliance-building and collaboration among programs, organizations, churches, businesses, etc. that service Rainier Beach residents. This allows for the leveraging of existing neighborhood assets to occur as well as the acquisition of needed resources in support of resident efforts.
We believe in being shamelessly and selfishly focused on improving our own neighborhood, because that's where we can have the most impact.
Thanks so much for your commitment to this community-led mission! We appreciate your support!
