OST/South Union became a GO Neighborhood in 2013 with the help of more than 400 people and dozens of organizations that work collaboratively to make OST/South Union a wonderful place to call home.
The goal of the OST/South Union GO Neighborhood is to achieve positive transformation of Southeast Houston through community-based creative placemaking- empowering residents to bring values and community history to effect change through well-designed improvements to the physical environment enhanced by artistic and cultural expression projects. Neighborhood Recovery CDC acts as the convening agency, and is coordinating a Steering Committee and GO Teams focused on implementing the strategies laid out in the Quality of Life Agreement that identifies the community’s vision for a sustainable community. The Southeast Houston Transformation Alliance (SEHTA) is a key partner in this work.
OHIP is a multi-sector collaborative that supports GO Teams in addressing social determinants of health in OST/South Union. It is funded by Episcopal Health Foundation. Our mission is to use our physical and spiritual resources to care for one another so that we can impact the hearts and health of our community.
