Organization

A strong organizational foundation is key for a sustainable Main Street revitalization effort. Fillmore Forward has established its organization as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. The organization is all about building effective, broad-based support for the revitalization of the Broadway-Fillmore and MLK commercial districts and bringing the community together to reach consensus, lead efforts, build partnerships, and add resources. The focus is on ensuring that all organizational resources (partners, funding, and volunteers) are mobilized to effectively implement the organization's revitalization strategies.
