"It takes a village to raise a child."
What does it take to build a healthy village?

What is Renewing the Village?

Renewing the Village is a community wide movement to reposition inner city Baton Rouge as the vibrant, healthy and thriving environment in which to live, work, socialize and experience success many of us have known it to be.

This goal cannot be accomplished without mobilizing committed community members, building impactful partnerships, unleashing the full potential of the assets of the urban core, and putting forth a new narrative about inner city neighborhoods and the people who live in them!

It will require us to examine our progress in education, health, the economy and building a sense of community. And it will require input and effort from each one of us.

Together, we can renew our village!
