East End Community Services

Established in 1998, East End Community Services provides a range of programs that help residents of East Dayton succeed and break the cycle of generational poverty.  In 2006, it worked with the Twin Towers neighborhood (an area where about a quarter of the housing stock was vacant and deteriorating) and other local nonprofits to create a comprehensive housing strategy, which was then adopted by the City.  Subsequently, between 2010 and 2013, East End worked with local partners to actualize the community’s plan, resulting in the development of 84 new homes representing an $18 million investment in the neighborhood.  East End is now working with community members on a plan to revitalize a core thoroughfare, Xenia Avenue, with the goals of improving safety, attracting new businesses, and creating jobs.
