Since 2014, we have been advocating for issues related to drugs, crime, and homeless services. Working as a community, we've seen decision makers commit to revamping homeless services, replacing the downtown shelter, and instigating Operation Rio Grande. Our neighborhood is changing, but we still have work to do.

 

Our Mission

Make the Pioneer Park neighborhood family-friendly and inviting to all - residents, businesses, individuals experiencing homelessness, and other community members. Read our founder's story about we began our coalition.
