Woodlawn Foundation

As the lead organization of Woodlawn United, a collaboration of groups working to break the cycle of poverty in Birmingham’s Woodlawn community, the Woodlawn Foundation partners with residents and other local stakeholders to identify community needs and leverage resources to address area challenges.  Its Housing Program aims to create long-term residency opportunities for a range of families by developing quality mixed-income, single-family housing and helping existing homeowners to rehabilitate older properties.  In 2016, the foundation provided free repairs to 15 homes and connected 64 families to units at its affordable townhouse community, Woodlawn Station.  Other Foundation initiatives currently focus on expanding educational opportunities and promoting community wellness.
