Third Ward is Home

About Us

Our members

We have partnered with people inside and out of the community to gather information on health, safety, transportation, housing, and the neighborhood.  We still need to hear directly from you!

How we got started

Our study is funded by the Houston Endowment to determine the needs of Third Ward residents, in order to create positive change in the community.

What we do

Rice University and Sankofa Research Institute have joined together to conduct a community assessment of Third Ward. Our goal is to interview residents at more than 3,000 households in the neighborhood.
