CATALYST PROGRAM

Building Blocks helps participating residents in Kalamazoo’s central city neighborhoods build community, to strengthen and revitalize their neighborhoods.

This program provides a platform for residents to come together to establish relationships as they cooperate on home improvement projects. ​ Encouraged by organizers, residents themselves help to mobilize their neighbors, decide on priorities, and make final funding decisions. They seek donations, contribute special expertise, and assume primary responsibility for completing their own work projects. Most residents report feeling empowered, energized and connected to their neighbors in new ways after completing this Building Blocks program.

These cooperative work projects foster on-going communications, build capacity, develop mutual trust, promote a sense of neighborhood pride and improve quality of neighborhood life.
