Our organization formed out of a strong belief in 3 things: the power of human connection, the importance of neighborhoods, and a strong commitment to Aurora Avenue as a place.

While we're fully aware that Aurora is actually a state highway, we couldn't overlook the small businesses, non-profits, neighbors and drivers that dotted the length of the corridor.

I guess you could say: we couldn't overlook the people. 

Our roots and initial mentoring for engaging 

Aurora Avenue came from local faith communities. We leaned on the principles of asset-based community development, seeking to bring only new things that were needed. After a few summers of the newly created Celebrate North Seattle event, we were encouraged to formally apply for non-profit status, which we received in 2016.

Our hope is to rebuild the neighborhoods around Aurora from the inside out. 


We currently do work in three areas: small business networking/support, community events, and art . Together, we are building a place we're proud of.
