Changing PlacesChanging Lives is more than a tagline. It is what drives our work each and every day.

It is reflected in our campaign to build the Emerald Trail and restore McCoys Creek and Hogans Creek. To create more resilient places that connect us, inspire our creativity, improve our health and reframe the way we think about - and talk - about our city.

It is equally evident in our work within the community— listening, engaging residents and stakeholders, and giving voice to people’s concerns and aspirations.

There are many ways you can support Groundwork Jacksonville. We hope you will spend some time learning about us and how you can help.
