Building hope. Expanding Capacity. Fostering Ownership. Revitalizing Community - Together.

The Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation (JCNI) is partnering with resident teams in southeastern San Diego to transform 60 acres into The Village at Market Creek, a LEED-certified neighborhood and vibrant cultural destination. Through a network of nonprofit and for-profit partners, locally-owned businesses and national tenants, a community and conference center, and a portfolio of social enterprise projects, JCNI is creating assets that will become economic engines for the community when the foundation sunsets in 2030. Under the banner of "Resident Ownership of Neighborhood Change," the people who live and work in the community create the vision, lead the implementation and own the change in their community.
