Our sisters founded Layton Boulevard West Neighbors, Inc. (LBWN) in response to the needs of the rapidly changing and culturally diverse south side neighborhood where St. Joseph Center—our international headquarters—has been an anchor for more than a century. Sisters mobilized residents and offered meeting spaces for community gatherings. In 1995, LBWN was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and hired a full-time director to connect neighbors to civic leaders and to each other. In October 2020, LBWN rebranded as VIA Community Development Corporation (VIA CDC).
The organization has grown to become one of Milwaukee's most successful community development corporations, offering distinct and important revitalization strategies for neighbors, businesses and the entire community. The organization uses a three-pronged approach to comprehensive neighborhood revitalization: grassroots leadership development, economic development, and home rehabilitation and ownership.
