Build Our Blocks

Posted on October 8th, 2018

Every year Alley Cat Advocates takes part in Mayor Greg Fischer’s Building Our Blocks (BOB) program. It was created as a response to systemic neighborhood challenges in Louisville. BOB brings together Louisville Metro Government agencies with community leaders and partner organizations to take steps to minimize blight, deter crime, beautify neighborhoods and build hope – one block at a time. BOB partners lend their time and resources to connect directly with residents to strengthen community engagement and provide on-the-spot services during the event.
