The Newport News Green Foundation enhances the quality of life in Newport News by preserving, transforming, and promoting green spaces throughout the city.

We accomplish this mission through:

  • The preservation of green space in a dynamic urban environment as a means to enhance quality of life, increase property value and support the growth of the city.
  • Transforming vacant and/or blighted properties into more visually attractive spaces.
  • When possible, making preserved spaces useful, active spaces.
  • Forming partnerships with like-minded groups and organizations to educate citizens, promote resiliency within the city, and support projects that complement our mission.
