About

Teamwork Englewood was formed in 2003 as part of the New Communities Program, sponsored by Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) and the MacArthur Foundation. Its goal is to unite the many organizations serving Englewood residents and work toward the common goal of building a stronger community.

Created by St. Bernard Hospital, Greater Englewood Parish United Methodist Church and Pullman Bank Initiatives (a subsidiary of the former Park National Bank), Teamwork Englewood drew input from more than 600 residents to draft a “Quality of Life Plan” – a roadmap to a brighter future for Englewood.

We are a capacity builder and a catalyst for positive community change, focused on safety, services to special needs populations and the promotion of healthy lifestyles for all residents. We are committed to providing quality services aligned to best practices. We will maintain existing partnerships and create new ones with community organizations, schools, faith-based institutions and businesses to continue our positive impact on the quality of life in the Englewood community
