The Charles Block Project is an initiative that actively engages and involves residents along Charles Avenue between Dale and Kent in a pilot “block long” neighborhood regeneration project supported by a collaborative of local partner organizations.


  • Encourage residents to determine what long and short-term goals they have for their homes and their block.
  • Mobilize the expertise and capacity of a collaboration of partners to help residents achieve those goals.
  • Provide neighbors the opportunity to build and/or strengthen relationships and neighborhood cohesiveness.
  • Positively impact the appearance and the perception of the block – and the neighborhood as a whole.
  • Preserve and highlight the architectural character and features of the houses.
  • Leverage additional investments into home improvement projects – through partner organizations and privately.
  • Provide organizational partners the opportunity to collaborate in new ways – jointly enhancing and expanding capacities to achieve impact through collaboration.
