East Trenton Collaborative

The East Trenton Collaborative, Isles, Inc. is a community organizing and development initiative in the East Trenton neighborhood of Trenton’s North Ward. By facilitating conversations and action on community priorities, we engage partners, support businesses, and build the power of residents to make East Trenton a great place to live, work, and play.

The East Trenton Collaborative, previously led by CityWorks, was first organized in 2007 and began official operation in 2009 focusing on redevelopment of East Trenton’s physical spaces as well as operation of the East Trenton Center to provide educational and social services. In response to the recent economic downturn and a need for increased administrative capacity as CityWorks closed its doors, New Jersey Community Capital became the East Trenton Collaborative’s lead organization in 2015. In 2018, ETC shifted its strategy and mission to frame its neighborhood revitalization efforts through community organizing. In 2024, Trenton based community development and environmental organization Isles, Inc. became the lead organization for the East Trenton Collaborative.
