Who We Are

KEEN Group

The KEEN Group is a 17 year old 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the economic and social revitalization of Southeast Fort Worth, Texas. Historically, the KEEN GROUP has led community improvement efforts such as creating affordable housing for low-income families to increase homeownership rates and value in our community. The KEEN Group has assisted the Fort Worth Police Department in reducing prostitution, drug related crimes, and gang activity in the Southside of Fort Worth. For more than 10 years, KEEN has leveraged resources for community based agencies, neighborhood associations and youth organizations. 


In 2008, the KEEN Group surveyed five neighborhoods in southeast Fort Worth to determine the most pressing concerns of its residents.  Among the needs identified were childhood obesity, the lack of safe recreational activities and the total absence of the arts.  In 2009 the KEEN began to provide youth programming  addressing those concerns.
