Our Mission & Vision
We believe in creating opportunity by building a network of community organizations, nonprofits, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and community members to revitalize under-resourced neighborhoods using an empowerment-based model of community engagement to bring renewal and restoration.
Our model focuses on five key areas that define a thriving neighborhood: economic development, housing, health, education, and spiritual care. We are bringing businesses, churches, nonprofits, and individuals together to make sure all our families and all our neighborhoods have access to each of these key areas.
Since forming in 2016 with our focus in San Jacinto, we have been able to expand to North Heights, The Barrio, Eastridge, and other under-resourced neighborhoods throughout Amarillo and the Texas Panhandle. We have worked on projects in Southern Mexico, East Africa, and across the country and have been fortunate to learn from, and impact, thousands of people.
At Square Mile, we recognize change is hard, and generational change is even more difficult. We stand in support of families and small business owners that are willing to do the work to make these changes to make a difference in their families and the lives of their community.
As an advocate of hope, we believe true change comes from the inside.
DO GOOD. BETTER.

SUPPORT LOCAL CHANGE
The team at Square Mile Community Development believes that every last dollar people give is an investment into the future of our local community. Because of this, we have chosen to work with our partners to make sure we keep our overhead as low as possible by using donated office space and strategically chosen facillities to house programs. By doing this, we ensure that the support you generously give is used to to build up people, not buildings. We need you to invest in bringing change to our neighborhoods.
What you give today is providing hope for generations to come.
