About


Who are we:

  • In wanting to continue moving forward with improving our Fifth Ward neighborhood, a group of Fifth Ward citizens have opted to mobilize and form an organization with a progressive agenda that builds on action based activity to make positive change in the community.   If you are interested in promoting safety, beautification and artistic expression in the Fifth ward community, we want to join forces with you.

Our objectives:

  • To promote civic engagement of the residents by encouraging coordination between residents and local municipal agencies.
  • To encourage improvements in the appearance of public and private properties in the area.
  • To promote wholesome, social, cultural and recreational activities in the area.
  • To take concerted actions in matters pertaining to the welfare of area residents.
  • To cultivate and promote an arts community in the Fifth Ward area

Where do we meet?
We currently meet the first Thursday of the month from 6:30pm-7:30pm temporarily at East Orange AME Church located at 4415 Orange St. Houston, TX 77020.
