We run year-round programming to make the neighborhood a more engaged, lively, and connected place.

Our signature community initiatives are Sunday Suppers, Hello, Neighbor!, and Pocket Change. Take a deeper look at our those initiatives below and check out our calendar for the full list of happenings.

SUnday Suppers

Every Sunday in August, we host an intimate community supper at the Southwest Duck Pond Park. These events bring diverse neighbors together to enjoy a performance followed by good food and conversation. Each August, registration is made available the Monday before the supper.

 

Hello, Neighbor!

Get to know your Southwest, D.C. neighbors through a series of video portraits. We interviewed over 30 local residents to share a variety of perspectives on the neighborhood - who’s here, what’s there to do, how to get involved. Take a look at Southwest, D.C. through the eyes of our residents!

 

Pocket Change

Change starts with your neighborhood. In 2018, we partnered with the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly (SWNA) to launch Pocket Change, a competition to receive funding for making a positive impact in the neighborhood. We’ll continue to host annual competitions, check in for details on upcoming pocket change events.
