Great Places 2020
The effort seeks to transform strategic places in Marion County into dynamic urban villages. These places already have great assets and potential, but they also have challenges that this process hopes to address.. Philanthropic, civic, and private partners will engage with neighborhoods to make significant social and capital investments to enhance quality of life and spur private investment.
Flanner House is the lead agency for the King Commons Great Places initiative. CWUW is excited to be a part of this initiative as we are a part of the work with Flanner House and the neighbors to enhance quality of life for the 25th and MLK corridor. We will work closely with Flanner House and LISC to help convene neighbors, business owners, and investors to complete the goals for the project. CWUW is a co-located nonprofit with an office at Flanner House. Our proximity to the project is ideal.
Also, CWUW is the Health Community Builder for King Commons in partnership with Flanner House. CWUW will lead health related programs and initiatives, work with community health workers, and engage neighbors in improving health outcomes.
