Stop Six remains the heartbeat of Fort Worth’s African American community and a cultural touchstone for thousands of families who have long since moved away. Restoring this historic community into a vibrant, sustainable neighborhood, as it was decades ago, is the driving intent of today’s Stop Six residents and stakeholders, and serves as the foundation of the Stop Six Choice Neighborhood Transformation Plan.

A Year of Empowerment and Engagement
When Urban Strategies, Inc. (USI) hired and onboarded its local team in July 2020, all 236 of the former Cavile Place households had already been relocated across Tarrant County. The USI team immediately understood the importance of engaging our families with completing the initial intake and assessment process; however, we faced barriers due to COVID-19. Our team was creative with navigating the safety concerns of our residents and gaining the trust of the families that we serve.
Our engagement strategy was a multiple-layer approach which included team-building with staff, collaborating with community partners, and building rapport with former Cavile Place residents. During our initial engagement process with partners, USI hosted three strategy development Action Team meetings that focused on the areas of Economic Mobility, Education, and Health and Wellness. During these sessions we discussed 1.) Residents need assessment, 2.) Factor Analysis that impacts households, and 3.) Long term strategy implementation and sustainability. USI has successfully incorporated the established strategies into our daily case management processes and will continue to modify techniques as needed.
