About Us
Urban Patch has a simple but powerful mission, to help make the American inner city better. Our work uses what we call a “past forward” approach that brings the rich legacy of our community’s past in building strong and resilient neighborhoods forward to today and the future by using holistic models of social, environmental and economic community development. Our projects have ranged from saving long-abandoned and foreclosed homes in the inner city to turning vacant lots into community spaces that can provide fresh and healthy food or ecological benefits, and to education programs that teach people how to take care of their families’ health, improve their community and steward their urban environment.
We Participate Because
The Urban Patch's goal is to make the American inner city better.
