Urban Neighborhood Initiatives works with communities in urban neighborhoods to build safe and thriving environments where people want to live, work, and play.

UNI at a Glance





We believe in strong neighborhoods

We believe every child should have a safe walk to school and a safe place to play. We believe that no one should drive by vacant, blighted land on their way home. We believe young people should have opportunities to develop as neighborhood leaders. We believe there is a strong relationship between having safe places to play and getting a good education, between beautification and economic development. 

We target critical neighborhood needs, often in collaboration with our partners, to create opportunities for significant community investment in youth development, neighborhood beautification and economic success, safety, and community relationships in the Springwells area to build this healthy, safe neighborhood. 



We are a group of passionate people who believe in the power of community.
