Community Development in Amani
Milwaukee’s Amani Neighborhood is located just northwest of downtown. Its borders are 20th to 27th Street and from Center Street on the south to Keefe Avenue on the north. Amani means “peace” in Swahili.
Community development efforts in Milwaukee’s Amani neighborhood (the area directly surrounding our Goldin Center on 24th and Burleigh) are an essential and integrated component of COA’s overall comprehensive programs. Our goal, through resident input and engagement, is to bring critically needed services to these neighborhoods to help families reach their greatest potential.
Ongoing community development initiatives in Amani include:
Stewardship of Moody Park
The Amani United Community Newsletter
Place-based population change initiatives
The Children’s Hospital and family pediatric clinic at the COA Goldin Center
