The WBNA organizes neighbors and businesses on the West Side of Providence to preserve and promote our diverse, historic, urban community as a safe, vibrant, and sustainable place to be SWELL
(Shop, Work, Eat, Live, and Learn locally).
Time for spring cleaning across the neighborhood at WBNA's 36th Annual Spring Cleanup and GreenUp! Cleanup Day ends with our annual free cookout for all volunteers. Make a great and visible impact on the neighborhood while getting to know your neighbors.
The Neighborhood-Wide Yard Sale is a great adventure and typically features between 40 and 60 yard sales, sidewalk sales, and open studios that will have you ambling through the Federal Hill and West End neighborhoods. Come out for one of WBNA's funnest events or sign up here to get your sale on the widely-distributed Yard Sale Map (just $10)!
Volunteers needed! In an ongoing partnership with House of Hope CDC, WBNA seeks volunteers for its ACES (Armory Citizens Enabling Shelter) initiative to provide outreach and supportive services to homeless and housing insecure individuals in the Dexter Training Ground area.
Be a Street Captain for our annual Spring Cleanup! Tired of seeing the same problem areas near your home week after week? Here's your chance to make it better in one day all while getting to know your neighbors!
From helping neighbors in need to ensuring neighbors have “a place at the table” about issues that are closest to home, our work could not be done without the support of WBNA members. While challenges over the years have changed, the need to come together and collectively find solutions continues. Learn more.
