What is a community quarterback?
Grove Park Foundation (GPF) is the newest “community quarterback” in the Purpose Built Communities network. In this role, GPF will align a set of investments in education, housing and wellness to create a healthy Grove Park neighborhood. GPF will bring diverse entities together to work effectively towards holistic community revitalization in Grove Park, with the goal of breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty. Priority will be given to ensure that Grove Park residents are engaged and included, that their needs and concerns are heard, and their talents are applied. As a community quarterback, the foundation also serves as a single point of accountability for funders, residents, and partner organizations who wish to engage and support this work in Grove Park.
