We are The Better Block Foundation, and we are a nonprofit that just moved into 1723 S. Ewing between Family Dollar and LaDale's. Our work is in urban design and grassroots community-building across the United States, but we want to help you make our new neighborhood shine.

We have a small, but mighty, team who works in design, building, carpentry, and digital fabrication to transform public spaces. That means that we want to listen, design, and build together with you to reshape some of the public spaces here in your neighborhood!
