Formed in 2009, the South Wilmington Planning Network (SWPN) is a collaborative partnership of residents and dozens of government, non-profit, and private
agencies who work together to improve quality of life in the Southbridge neighborhood of Wilmington, Delaware.
Southbridge is an historic, African-American, working-class neighborhood of 1,300. The community struggles with environmental and health concerns, high unemployment and a poverty rate of 30% – nearly three times the state average.
Our initiatives are centered around:
- Built and Natural Environmental, Workforce, and Economic Development
- Health Care and Preventative Services
- Youth Development and Programs
