Center for Resilient Cities


The Center for Resilient Cities is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that practices sustainable community development, working with neighbors to build communities that are good for people and good for the environment. Our process starts by asking neighbors about the values, needs and priorities of the community. Then we lend our expertise and develop partnerships to address both current and future challenges within the neighborhood.

Adaptation Work:

Our projects help cities build the proper infrastructure they require to be resilient.

Current Projects:

  • Johnsons Park Initiative A community-driven endeavor that is transforming Milwaukee’s Lindsay Heights neighborhood through innovative green infrastructure projects.
  • Badger Rick Center An ambitious partnership that tests, demonstrates and rigorously measures the solutions needed for vibrant, healthy and resilient cities.
  • Community Food Systems We believe food should be healthy, affordable, accessible and just. So, we’re working with our community to advocate for a resilient food system.
