We are Hobart’s Run

We bring people, initiatives, and resources together to make good things happen in our neighborhood and throughout Pottstown.

Our Mission Statement

The Hobart’s Run neighborhood initiative, a 501(c)(3), was launched by The Hill School in 2016 to create a clean and safe community; foster inclusivity; provide incentives for home ownership and property pride; and generate quality business development. While specifically focusing on a 900 parcel area, Hobart’s Run supports revitalization efforts throughout Pottstown.
