What We Do

At Spark we believe in the power of community. We help transform disinvested neighborhoods into thriving and prosperous communities.Our work can be complex but our mission is simple: to invest in neighborhood transformation.

We listen to and value the people who live, work and believe in their neighborhoods. We are building a culture of holistic community development in neighborhoods with great potential and rich in the currency of hope.

This looks different in each neighborhood – a mixed-income housing development, park renovations, or a commercial space rehabilitation are just a few examples of what we build. We listen to neighbors so we can understand what’s working and where there is opportunity for improvement, whether that’s good homes people can afford, places to get healthcare, dependable public transportation, or good schools, and then we work in partnership to activate change.

Interesting Info

We work in North Omaha, South Omaha, and Council Bluffs neighborhoods.
We focus on areas that have the greatest need for investment and the potential to produce the greatest reward to residents and public/private stakeholders.
