MVOC has built a vibrant base of individuals and institutions throughout the Mahoning Valley. By being in relationship with over 110 neighborhood groups, faith institutions, labor unions, and nonprofit organizations, we are able to reach thousands of residents from a wide variety of racial, social, economic, and geographic backgrounds. Act Locally The heart of our work is done block-by-block. Since 2008, our organizers have developed local leaders and tripled the number of neighborhood groups in the two-county region.
Think Globally Whether it's bringing neighbors together for a clean-up or community garden, pushing for adequate resources for code enforcement and demolition, or educating folks regarding social determinants of health, MVOC's diverse and growing array of partnerships allows our staff of professional organizers and key leaders to mobilize residents across boundaries in collaboration on a broad range of community-driven campaigns that reflect the shared values of our base. As a result, we have built a broad movement to address issues of inequity and disinvestment that create impediments to the successful redevelopment of industrial cities in the Mahoning Valley and across Ohio.
