Celebrating Community in East Riverside

A Year In Review

Another successful year draws to a close. It is with great pride that we can look back at the many achievements of our organization in 2018. We are extremely grateful for the community's support and help in creating a positive and thriving neighborhood in East Riverside. 


This past year, we grew our organization to over 150 members, received our 501(c)(3) designation, organized our first official fundraiser, hosted our second annual Block Party, held a couple
of transportation meetings, created Friends of Riverside yard signs, and had a few happy hours! We look forward to hosting more events and making more long-lasting friendships in the years to come. 

Friends of Riverside ATX Fundraiser 

Academy of Hair Design kindly helped us host our first fundraiser as an official non-profit. The hair school offered haircuts and hairstyles to customers, and proceeds were contributed to Friends of Riverside ATX.  

Project Connect Meeting 

Capital Metro's Project Connect team reached out to our organization to make a presentation to the neighborhood about the potential transit solutions for our area. Visitors were able to learn more about the program and were able to provide feedback for future projects. 

A Corridor Conversation

We decided to host a special meeting to educate and inform everyone in the neighborhood about the recommendations that had been made for the East Riverside Corridor. As a neighborhood association, we always try to inform you all about relevant things happening in our area. 

Austin Neighborhood Assistance Happy Hour

The Austin Neighborhood Assistance Center joined our happy hour to teach us about the available resources to make our organization even stronger. Our happy hours are a great opportunity for community members to connect and network!

 Block Party 

We held our second annual block party with the help of multiple neighborhood businesses, the Austin Fire Department, Austin Police Department and many other key participants in the community.

End-of-Year Happy Hour

To end the year, we gathered at Hecho en Mexico, a new neighborhood restaurant, to celebrate all of the accomplishments we made together. 

All that we have accomplished to date has been possible thanks to some extremely dedicated Riverside friends and supporters: Good Shepherd on the Hill Episcopal Church, Mour Cafe, Academy of Hair Design, Solaris Apartments, Element Apartments, Taco More, Austin Police DepartmentBoost Mobile, and Jim Young CCIM

If you are able, please consider making a donation to our non-profit to continue the community efforts in East Riverside. 

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
