building

community one block at a time

Building Blocks of Kalamazoo organizes residents, one block at a time, to enhance the quality of neighborhood life. Building Blocks brings neighbors together in neighborhoods that face unique challenges associated with poverty and chronic disinvestment. Block-level groups of residents socially and physically revitalize their street based on their vision and strengths. Our Catalyst (short-term) and Sustained (long-term) programs develop resident leadership, build social capital, connect residents to resources and increase residents’ sense of pride and trust on their blocks. 

“The project helped introduce us to each other, bring us closer together and aid in the improvement of the neighborhood. Working together was the best part of this experience. I am more committed to being actively involved with my neighbors in the improvement of our street!”
