Sanger Heights was the first Neighborhood Association organized by residents in Waco.  Past activities include spearheading the City of Waco's first neighborhood recycling and "Citizens on Patrol" programs, as well as helping to create Waco Charter School - a TEA "recognized" school, and NeighborWorks Waco - one of Waco's leading community development organizations.  It is our collective vision that Sanger-Heights remain a diverse, vibrant place that welcomes people from all backgrounds and income-levels to invest their resources into making it the premier urban neighborhood in Waco

  • creating constructive relationship-building experiences among neighbor,
  • raising our area’s visibility within the Realtor community,
  • attracting more businesses that improve the neighborhood, and
  • working with the City of Waco on code enforcement.
