Who we are

The Vision of Woodlawn United

The Vision of the Woodlawn Foundation is to grow a safe and healthy community where children learn and play, families live in quality housing, parents work in stable jobs, businesses thrive and everyone contributes to the growth of Greater Birmingham.

Envisioning a community where residents and businesses thrive.

Since 2010, Woodlawn United has served as the community quarterback, leading an alliance of partners committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in Birmingham’s historic Woodlawn community.

Our holistic approach to community revitalization follows a model established by Purpose Built Communities, an organization that helps struggling communities across the country implement proven and effective strategies to end concentrated poverty.

Working alongside residents and local stakeholders, we help to prioritize initiatives and leverage resources across three main pillars, including: a cradle-to-college/career education pathway, high-quality mixed income housing, and community wellness programs.

The Vision of Woodlawn United is to grow a safe and healthy community where children learn and play, families live in quality housing, parents work in stable jobs, businesses thrive, and everyone contributes to the growth of Greater Birmingham.
