About The Urban Collaborative Project
Committed to helping our neighborhoods thrive...
The Urban Collaborative Project is an community effort consisting of a series of action teams using data to identify major disparities within our community. With that information in mind these teams create action plans research and solutions designed to address our disparities focusing on health education and art and infrastructure.

This " community healing process" is designed to build capacity by encouraging  training and supporting local residents to identify and solve our own community issues.
