SE Uplift is required to follow the guidelines of our grant from the Office of Neighborhood Involvement and submit quarterly reports on our activities. The narrative portion of our report addresses goals of strengthening community capacity, increasing the number and diversity of people involved in neighborhood and community livability issues, fostering networking and collaboration between community groups, and encouraging and facilitating communication among community members and groups. As an umbrella organization for the 20 neighborhoods of our area, our staff engages in a wide array of support roles which fall into many types of community events and activities.
In the past quarter SE Uplift provided a grant for an original theatre production about the common humanity of end of life issues in and LGBTQ marriage, conducted a workshop for the Breaker’s Design Challenge Leadership Camp, provided insurance for neighborhoods’ National Night Out parties to promote community-building and community safety, hosted the Disability and Culture Justice Leadership Institute, provided coordination and administrative support for multiple neighborhood cleanups, and more.
