Neighborhood Revitalization is Habitat for Humanity’s holistic approach that expands upon its partnership with volunteers and new homeowners and local organizations to improve the quality of life for the community’s residents.
Through this effort, neighborhoods across the United States are revitalized into vibrant, safe and inviting places to live for current and future residents, thanks to the hard work of engaged citizens, partnerships with civic and business groups, and a renewed sense of community.
Creating Greater Impact
While new home construction remains at the core of what we do, Habitat cannot transform neighborhoods through new construction alone. By launching Neighborhood Revitalization, we are able to work more intensively within a neighborhood to meet resident needs and aspirations, ultimately improving the quality of life for not only residents of these neighborhoods, but for the city as a whole.
Neighborhood Revitalization enables us to serve even more families by responding to the concerns and needs of the local community. NR motivates the community to become active in local improvements and assist residents with the development of their neighborhood which strengthens residents morale and appreciation for where they live.
The three foundational outcomes of Neighborhood Revitalization are:
Sense of community:
Identifying with the neighborhood, feeling connected and supporting one another.
Being willing and able to work together.
Sustaining ongoing projects and advocacy efforts.
