2022 was another year fueled by strength, resilience, and collaboration as we worked towards creating the community the residents of Woodlawn have always imagined. Their vision and hope for Woodlawn shaped our strategy and drove our work this past year. There’s much work to do, and we have no doubt that with the residents as our guide and you by our side, we will continue to create new pathways to prosperity and generational wealth in Woodlawn.

Our progress served as a new beginning for us and this community as we finalized our strategic priorities for the next five years, strengthened our community partnerships, and renewed our commitment to legacy residents and small business owners.

2020 was the year that revealed our community’s weakest vulnerabilities, deepest inequities, and widest gaps. The challenges emerged quickly. But donations from supporters like you made it possible for the Woodlawn United team to respond to each challenge with resources and a plan.

During the production of our 2019 Annual Report, we were hit with a global pandemic. Mashonda Taylor was named Executive Director of the Woodlawn Foundation on March 13, 2020, the same day Governor Ivey declared a public health emergency in Alabama. She immediately announced that all Woodlawn Foundation Staff would work remotely and all in-person events and community meetings were cancelled. Despite the difficulty of “working from home,” Mashonda and her team have done an extraordinary job of meeting the challenges facing our community residents and partners.
