About Community Services
The Community Services unit performs street level outreach, citizen engagement and community partnership building activities, to inform and involve citizens of CDBG-eligible neighborhoods in local planning efforts, housing improvement, economic development, poverty reduction, and other federally funded human services activities. The unit also provides service coordination assistance to eligible residents and directly manages neighborhood-based programs which include grants to eligible low-and-moderate income neighborhoods and assistance to eligible senior citizens and disabled persons with exterior property code violations that have been cited by code enforcement.

Savannah Youth Ambassadors:

Savannah Youth Ambassadors participate in leadership development sessions and hands-on activities that encourage personal, social, and civic development.  Guest facilitators will present on topics such as social media, life after high school, the history of Savannah and its neighborhoods, and much more.  Participants will explore various local businesses as well as civic, academic, and cultural institutions.  The program culminates  with participants designing, coordinating, and implementing a collaborative, make a difference community impact project.
