Neighborhood Revitalization

Neighborhood Revitalization

Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) is a collaborative approach to improve the quality of life for all residents in a neighborhood. Focus areas include: beautification, community, housing, and 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.
