1159 South was formed by a group of concerned citizens who have deep roots in south Springfield and love this community. We exist to significantly improve the economic conditions of low-income people, housing, appearance of distressed places, and sense of community in the historically African American community of southwest Springfield, OH through targeted investments in people and places.

Our initial work is focused on engaging the community and improving neighborhoods one block at a time by transforming vacant lots at key intersections into vibrant public spaces and improving distressed properties. We are also deeply engaged in supporting small businesses with technical and financial resources.

Our core program areas are:
