Building a Better Community One Block at a Time
Target Vitality is a partnership of local citizens, non-profits, churches, and city leaders formed to focus on making the City of Terrell a better place to live – one neighborhood at a time. They are working together to lay the groundwork for a program that combines the resources of the community into one powerful coalition for positive change.
