Revitalization 2000, Inc.

Serving the Ville neighborhood of north St. Louis

 

Our Mission

  We collaborate with residents, government, church, schools, and businesses to revitalize and empower our Ville neighborhood.

The mission of Revitalization 2000, Inc. (R2K), founded in 1998, is to collaborate with residents, government, church, schools, and businesses to revitalize and empower our Ville neighborhood. R2K operates a number of youth programs. Our mission and our programs enfold into the Ville Collaborative which R2K co-founded in 2012 and for whom R2K serves as the backbone organization. Our joint mission is to work together to create a common focus that promotes trust, builds neighborhood relationships, and therein finds ways to make a collective impact in the Ville. The collaborative also connects neighborhood partners with organizations and volunteer resources outside the Ville. Our partnerships focus on: 

  1. Engaging with neighborhood public schools to partner in providing out-of-classroom educational opportunities that complement in-classroom learning. This is now the principal goal of our collaborative.
  2. Empowering neighborhood youth through involving them in our community garden activities, providing them opportunities for earned income, teaching and mentoring them, and encouraging them to continue their education.
  3. Improving the quality of life in the Ville and therein attracting families to the Ville who in turn will support our neighborhood schools. To do this we:
    • support neighborhood housing efforts by creating an environment that promotes home ownership and engaging homeowners in the community. 
    • work together to beautify our neighborhood and increase access to nutritious foods by creating landscaped gardens on vacant properties in the Ville.
