About this organization






Central Area Neighborhood Development Organization works to support and strengthen the Central neighborhood in the areas of community building, economic development and housing though engaged and informd actions, fostering a neighborhood where everyone can thrive.


In 2018 CANDO worked to foster cross-neighborhood collaborations. We worked with multiple niighborhooda and out City Council Member's office to organize a celebration of the re-opennong of a bridge over Interstate 35W and a Landlord Scorecard, promoted our housing loan and programs, and hosted weekly drop-in meetings for housing-related issues. We organized community engagement events including the annual Central Fair and Harvest Feast, our neighborhood meeting, and a back to school celrbration ans School supply giveaway. We expanded our PLAT-GROW-SHARE gardening program with 20 additional low-income residents/families that built raised garden beds, attending classes, and grew vegetables in their homed and at our community garden. PLANT-GROW-SHARE also hosted bonfire gatherings and gave away produce through weekly Little Free Farmers Markets.
