Working to make Midtown a great place for ALL.
Hey! Are you following us on social media? If not, follow us on Instagram and Facebook today!
We Need Your Support.

It’s hard to believe, but 2021 is nearly behind us. With your help, we celebrated 40 years of work moving Midtown forward. And we are just getting started.
During the last two tumultuous years, we’ve not only continued our many ongoing programs, but we’ve also expanded our efforts in the realms of economic development, homelessness outreach and public art.
We are a nonprofit, donor-funded community and economic development agency that strives every day to improve the quality of life for all of Midtown. This work is made possible by generous contributions from the people like you. Please see our current brochure for a more detailed account of how we work for you and all members of our Midtown community.
