Working Closely with Neighbors and Local Leaders to Honor the History and Community-voiced Priorities

We create holistic environments through partnerships and within communities that are thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of those who call it home.

Four pillars, one thriving community. Amplify GR works at the intersection of people, partnership and place in the areas of economic opportunity, mixed-income housing, education and community well-being within Boston Square, Madison Square and surrounding neighborhoods within Grand Rapids Michigan’s southeast side.

The drivers of our work come directly from community-voiced priorities such as:

  • Health and wellness
  • Parks and green spaces
  • Diverse arts & culture
  • Business attraction and retention
  • Banking & financial services
  • Fresh food options
  • Youth and adult programs
  • Good paying jobs

We emphasize working closely with neighbors and local leaders to honor the history and community-voiced priorities. We believe that all people deserve to experience the joy of living in a thriving neighborhood.

There is no force greater than a neighborhood working together to uncover what it cares about. There is no greater joy than having the opportunity to serve others and connect my neighbors with the resources they need.
