Creating change is not easy, but it is possible.

One Troy is a collaborative effort of nonprofits, businesses and residents seeking to create a better life for people living in the North Central and Hillside communities in Troy, New York.

Our Vision

Over the next 10 years, we will see a reduction in poverty by 20% in the North Central and Hillside communities of Troy. Such that, every child and family has the opportunity to live in a stable community where economic mobility becomes a reality.

Shared Principles

We before Me
This is everyone's responsibility. Success requires us to commit to the shared vision.

Start with what is strong, not what is wrong
We start with the strengths and assets that already exist in the community.

Equity Matters
Just and fair inclusion in which all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential.

None of us is as good as all of us
The problem of poverty is too big and complex for any one of us to address alone and requires that we take a comprehensive multi-collaborative approach. That includes systems of solutions.

Empower Families
We commit to empowering individuals and families to create their own solutions.

The Conversation Continues...


On August 25th, we gathered to follow up on the conversations we had at our One Thing event in July. The results from the first event showed clear interest in the following areas: Youth, Housing, Jobs, Safety, and Community Revitalization.  

We talked about the data we could find in each of these areas - what everyone found interesting, what everyone found surprising, what everyone found frustrating - and then began the first steps towards creating real ACTION.
