Thurston Woods is a part of the Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative - an effort designed as an avenue for implementing revitalization strategies in select neighborhoods throughout Milwaukee.  Conveniently located in Milwaukee's Northwest Side, Thurston Woods offers affordable homes, a variety of architectural styles, a culturally diverse setting, and a comprehensive community center in the heart of the neighborhood.  Agape Community Center focuses on four core efforts:

 

  • Improving the neighborhood aesthetic and physical condition.

  • Enhancing neighborhood identity.

  • Fostering neighborhood management.

  • Stimulating the real estate market.

Central to these efforts are partnerships with residents, employers, and other area organizations.  Information on a few of these partnerships is provided at the bottom of this page.  Additionally, Agape Community Center offers an ongoing grant program which encourages community members to utilize creative neighborhood projects to invest locally.

In late August 2011, Agape Community Center welcomed a new Neighborhood Development Coordinator to work with residents and employers in the Old North Milwaukee neighborhood.  This individual, through the AmeriCorps*VISTA program, will work on developing a neighborhood plan with the community, and will coordinate with community members to implement local improvements.  The plan will guide Agape's future neighborhood revitalization efforts within Old North Milwaukee.

 

The Old North Milwaukee neighborhood extends further south than the current Agape Service Area boundary of Villard Avenue.  As such, Agape staff is currently focused on working with residents and employers in the area north of Villard Avenue.  In the future, these efforts may expand.

 

If you are an employer, an employee, or a resident of the Old North Milwaukee neighborhood, please call the Neighborhood Development team to provide input and to learn more about the status of Agape's work in the neighborhood.
