Price Hill is known for more than just its famous chili; it’'s a neighborhood in the midst of revitalization with renovated homes, young musicians and community gardens emerging. This is in part thanks to Price Hill Will, a non-profit community development agency that has been working to renew East, West and Lower Price Hill for more than a decade, incorporated in 2004.

Design can be used for many things, but how about solving social problems? That’'s exactly what nonprofit social innovation firm Design Impact strives to do. Those at the firm -– designers, community development leaders, social entrepreneurs and educators alike - collaborate with other nonprofits to design creative systems and services that evaluate deeper problems such as youth homelessness.

The Miami University Center for Community Engagement in Over-the-Rhine establishes collaborations between the University and community groups in the neighborhood, providing opportunities for student, faculty, and community learning, in an environment that fosters and supports social justice and community transformation.
