Message From the President

Since 1994, the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation has partnered with resident teams in the Diamond Neighborhoods of Southeastern San Diego with the mission of, “Resident Ownership of Neighborhood Change.” The goal has been to work in partnership with residents to clarify the community vision that brings about meaningful and sustainable change. This vision includes a comprehensive development plan to create a vibrant town center and destination for arts and culture.

We know that no single community-based organization can achieve social and economic development alone. To be successful, we must engage broader partnerships in various sectors including government, physical development, education, arts, health, and safety.

We invite you to join us as we forge a new dynamic for creating meaningful and sustainable change in our community.
