Over the last two decades, four different community development and revitalization plans have been created for Amani. These plans were created with resident input through community sessions, monthly neighborhood meetings, door-to-door canvassing and other neighborhood activities.
While the goals and direction of our work have remained the same throughout the evolution of these plans, the neighborhood has continued to develop its efforts with increased resources, as well as increased involvement from residents and partner organizations. The current Amani Neighborhood Revitalization Plan builds upon residents’ hopes to create a path to reunite Amani residents and reestablish Amani as a welcoming neighborhood with opportunities for all.
The many activities at the Dominican Center are intimately linked together. They lead to, from and with each other. Without an education, finding a job is problematic. Without a job, homeownership isn’t feasible. Without ongoing financial growth, neighborhood development isn’t possible. The weaving together of all of these elements is what makes our mission successful.
