Argentine Betterment Corporation, alongside Youth Front and Franklin Center organization are working to further raise funds to redevelop the Franklin Center with the goal to empower common neighbors to change common urban problems into an uncommon good. We are a collective of social entrepreneurs, visionaries, and ordinary neighbors who are redefining the good life in distressed, urban neighborhoods
Our top priority in the Argentine community is improving the health and welfare of the people in our community. Since the inception of Argentine Betterment Corp we have worked tirelessly to establish, support and implement programs that help support this priority with continued success. We are working to further this agenda and create more programs geared at the health of our community
Argentine is a tight knit community and it has always been a tradition to gather to and celebrate. Our team works to continue our traditions such as Silver City Day, our Christmas Celebration, Music in the Park and the block party to name a few. We are looking forward to improving these events and creating more opportunities to celebrate.
When Argentine Betterment Corp. began, our community had existed as a food desert for over a decade. There was no accessible grocery options nearby and it was important to the health and welfare of our community to end the food desert. At the time we secured a lease with a small grocery chain and started construction on the building.
Recently, the building was purchased by Mercado Fresco to further the goal of improving the health and welfare of our community.
There has always been a demand for decent affordable housing in Argentine. Alongside other organizations in our community we have worked tirelessly to establish new and renovated housing to upgrade the neighborhood and provide affordable housing for people who want to be part of this community.
