A Springdale Park community initiative to rehabilitate, empower and improve the quality of life for long-term residents
The Springdale Park Neighbors is a registered civic association formed by long-term unhoused residents of East Austin. The association’s goal is to employ a “hand-up” not a “hand-out” approach by identifying specific needs for individuals, then acquiring and administering the resources necessary to help improve their quality of life.
Specific areas include providing permanent housing, work opportunities, and health and substance abuse counseling. The neighbors also support neighborhood revitalization and beautification projects. Empowering residents to help themselves and fellow residents in a cooperative manner.
Working with the support of the Austin Justice Coalition, Austin Public Health, and the City of Austin the entire community is making great strides and healing every day. Your financial support and encouragement are greatly appreciated.
