Background On Our Partner Neighborhood
St. Johns is a historic neighborhood located at the intersection of several major highways in northeast Austin. Residents in this neighborhood have historically faced linguistic isolation, lower income levels, adverse educational outcomes, and a lack of access to public services and funding. However, this tight-knit, majority Latino and African American community has been undergoing major changes in the last few years. Intensive organizing efforts by dedicated community leaders have had a major positive impact, and the Project is dedicated to assisting these community leaders in any way possible!
