South End Community Collaborative

A coalition of South End, Albany organizations and residents working together in the South End to align our goals and work together to improve our community.

Our mission is to “engage and mobilize our community to create radical, effective change”.

We had our first meeting in April 2018. The meeting included SEIC, AVillage, Albany Housing Authority, Albany County Land Bank, Trinity Alliance, the YMCA, representatives from the City of Albany, and the County of Albany, among others. We soon had an evening meeting held at Giffen Community School in June 2018 with the intent of being more accessible community residents.

We now meet every month, switching off between morning (8:30 am) and evening (6 pm) meetings to be able to include as many people as possible.
