2017 Impact Report

Dear friends of Urban Strategies,

It has been my distinct pleasure to lead this organization over the past year – and what a year it has been! I find myself in a beautifully juxtaposed position of transitioning two of our first Choice Neighborhood Initiatives in New Orleans and San Francisco, just as the momentum is turning up in two new communities in Louisville and St. Louis.

I very much look forward to continue to apply our knowledge and experience, while leveraging strong partnerships to create meaningful, measurable change for residents in each and every one of the communities in which we serve.

I am truly grateful to work with the most dedicated, talented and courageous teammates, residents, and partners who have stepped up to our various challenges in order to help children and families thrive.

Thank you for being a part of this.

Sincerely, Esther Shin, President & CEO
