In collaboration with partner organizations and local leaders, Boston-Thurmond United plans to offer high-quality, affordable single-family and multi-family housing surrounded by safe walkways and streets. Initial programs will focus on revitalization of single-family housing for existing homeowners and new construction on vacant or abandoned lots.
In partnership with local schools, Boston-Thurmond United will establish an active community environment for student growth, learning and achievement, starting at birth. Early work will focus on Cook Literacy Model School and Kimberley Park Elementary School and ensure that neighborhood students succeed in the rigorous curriculum at Paisley IB Magnet School. Concurrently, we will pursue options for an early childhood learning center to serve the neighborhood.
Alongside residents, Boston-Thurmond United aims to provide a mix of facilities, programs and services that honor local history, reflect the priorities of residents, promote healthy lifestyles and reduce crime.
Boston-Thurmond United will work with local partners to provide access to job training, entrepreneurship opportunities and jobs within the broader Winston-Salem economy. Additionally, the organization will work with community partners to provide financial literacy training for youth and adults.
