Mission + Vision

Sound End Improvement Corporation was founded in 1978 by community activist, Elfrieda Textores, and members of the South End Concerned Citizens. Their goal was to draw attention to the needs of the South End, tap into funding for housing and public improvements, and give residents a voice in decision-making affecting their neighborhood.      

Forty years later, we remain a critical partner in the revitalization of Albany’s largest downtown district aiming to help residents of the South End improve the condition of their homes and quality of their neighborhood.
