Power of Place
The Northwest Dayton Partnership, fondly named NWDP, was established in 2021 to center resident voices and support the community as it works to achieve collective goals.
Through a resident-led community steering committee, NWDP convened a cross-sector group of community stakeholders to implement special initiatives and develop a community plan focused on increasing racial equity, justice, and economic mobility for all residents - especially Black residents traditionally marginalized by the effects of redlining in northwest Dayton.
This document outlines the goals, priorities, strategies, and specific ways that YOU can do your part in making our community better. Partnering with dedicated organizations, philanthropic champions, and accountable public officials to support this investable community plan, we will make our vision come to life.
What's Next?!? Omega CDC, with support from a Promise Neighborhood Award, has launched the HOPE ZONE to ensure resident voice is centered, prioritize strategies, and reach the goals. Learn more and stay involved.
