Missing:OPPORTUNITY

The case for change in Georgetown’s West End.

Facts we are working to change:

  • 1 in every 7 students drops out of high school in Georgetown
  • Over 50% of West End households have one parent and survive on less than $20,000 per year
  • There is no multi-arts venue or public community gathering space in Georgetown’s West End
  • There are more than 140 dilapidated structures within the 350-acre West End community

Sample structures undergoing renovation by Mitney partners.
