Company Description

The Brownsville Partnership convenes community stakeholders to harness their collective power to advance the health, safety, and prosperity of the storied Brooklyn neighborhood of Brownsville.

Over more than a decade, residents, not for profits, government, local business and philanthropy have come together under the Partnership to work collectively on priorities set by Brownsville families. In 2019, the Brownsville Partnership began transitioning from a project incubated within Community Solutions to become a separate, affiliated not for profit.

More than 50 organizations have been part of the journey thus far, harnessing the collective strength, talent and activism rooted in the neighborhood. Several of these organizations have been founded by Brownsville residents while others that have brought essential resources to the community.

The Partnership supports the implementation of the Brownsville Plan, a collective strategy for the equitable development of the neighborhood, through the lens of health, housing, and economic mobility.
