About Us

Block leaders participating in community training offered by Greater Newark LISC.

The Heart of Vailsburg (HOV) Block Club Coalition (BCC) is a network of neighbors who volunteer their time and skills to address concerns and work on solutions to improve quality of life. HOV-BCC is supported through the UVSO’s Department of Community Outreach & Planning (DCOP). The DCOP office also liaises on behalf of the agency to support the community and city-wide projects and collaboratives including the West Ward Business Improvement District (BID), Newark DIG: Doing Infrastructure Green, and Newark Thrives, a Network for Youth Opportunity.

HOV-BCC holds a general assembly monthly to establish neighborhood priorities and action steps to improve the quality of life in the Vailsburg neighborhood. Block by Block we seek to educate, engage and empower residents from three years old to 103 with activities that leave all of us better off than we were the day.
