Neighborhood Revitalization

Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) is a collaborative approach to improve the quality of life for all residents in a neighborhood.  Focus areas include: health, education, amenities, economic opportunities, transportationbeautification, community, housing, health, and safety. NR is accomplished by creating partnerships with area businesses, government, residents, and other nonprofits who share a vision of revitalization.

 While new home construction and home repairs remain at the core of what we do, we cannot transform neighborhoods through construction alone. Through NR, we can make a greater impact within a neighborhood and meet resident goals and aspirations. Ultimately improving the quality of life, for not only residents of these neighborhoods, but for the city as a whole. 

NR will improve the lives of families through:

  • Beautification
    • Improving curb appeal.
  • Health 
    • Supporting residents physical and mental health.
  • Safety
    • Ensuring residents have a sense of personal and neighborhood safety.
  • Housing
    • Residents Have safe and decent affordable housing.
  • Community
    • Residents feeling connected and supporting each other.

Quality of Life Framework

The quality of life framework maps how multiple elements work together to achieve improved quality of life. It is being integrated into neighborhood revitalization as a tool to help Habitat for Humanity and partners better understand how change happens in a neighborhood.
