Our Vision

Cultivating a framework of belonging in the East End


The neighborhood is a place where everybody belongs. We fiercely believe in being good neighbors, and that starts with getting to know our neighbors. Some of us have lived in the East End of Houston for a very long time. Others are pretty new. No matter who you are, you belong here. 

The Block Party is a great place to begin. It is the framework that makes the belonging possible. Our dream is to have a neighborhood that is connected together and everybody feels welcome. 



Neighbors creating community through games, art, and food 


Neighbors. We live in the East End. We live next to you. And we are all about the neighborhood. 

Games. Games for kids, games for adults, there is nothing like playing together to make a neighborhood feel like home. What games do you like to play at a party? 

Art. Everybody is an artist. Telling the beauty of the world and the deepest desires of our heart make us all artists. How can you participate in this great human story with your art? 

Food. We always bring plenty of food for everybody. But bring some food to share too! There is nothing that makes a party like good food. 

true security is to be found in social solidarity rather than in isolated individual effort.
