Operation Better Block
Founded in the 1970s, Operation Better Block (OBB) promotes economic development in the Homewood neighborhood of Pittsburgh and provides a variety of direct services to Homewood residents and business owners.
Fourth Economy is completing a strategic plan for OBB that will help the non-profit organization refocus efforts and establish internal processes for future actions. It will also seek to establish partnerships, financial strategy, and a fundraising plan to support future work. The strategic plan will determine the mix of products and services that OBB will need to support its mission over the next three to five years and includes analysis of important trends impacting the Homewood community, exploration of the demand for programs and services from residents, an assessment of the local ecosystem to identify partnership opportunities, product and service gaps and recommendations to strengthen organizational governance.
