“Supporting Programs that will  Prepare Our Youth for the 21st Century”

The Ridge & Bangs Revitalization Project, was implemented in 2003, represented a comprehensive strategy to revitalize a targeted neighborhood.   ” Ridge and Bangs Revitalization Project”,  the project started out by assisting the City of Asbury Park with projects like street sweeping, sidewalk improvements, tree removal, infrastructure improvements, rehabilitation of properties and beautification.
Ridge & Bangs Revitalization Project has been renamed to “Westside Citizens United” we have partnered with other community agencies to bring positive programs into the community for all ages.  We have sponsored programs like: Community Clean-up, City Wide Spring and Fall planting & clean-up, Back to School Block Party, VNACJ Community Day, Community Garden and AP Seniors Valentine’s Day Party and the J.E.T (Junior Entrepreneur Training) program.

Westside Citizens United is making connections needed to develop our community by involving the schools, residents and businesses.  With our Fish Fry Fundraisers we have been able to donate back to the community for our youth; Asbury Park Little League Summer Camp Program, Interfaith Neighbors, F3B (Three Female Ballers) Organization and Urban Youth Civil Rights Education Initiative.
Moving forward we will be looking to bring about more programs within the community, but we are looking for community residents to volunteer and join our team.

In any business, what really matters is not what you do but how you do it. For us it’s about the what, the how and the why because we care about our community and their needs. However, professionalism in delivering our services is always our first priority.  Over 15 years giving back to the community, this organization offers both experience and know-how to see our projects through to success.

Take a moment to get to know us and let us know how we can help.


We’re always eager to showcase our events that we have had so much success with and we’ve learned that our community will enjoy our galleries for inspiration. We make sure to update them regularly with our latest products and services. Have a look around and let us know what you think.
