Neighborhood Revitalization affiliates now serve 61% of all families served by Habitat in the U.S.
Under Habitat for Humanity’s larger goal of building homes, community and hope, Neighborhood Revitalization aims to find holistic solutions that focus on building community. Primarily, we partner with existing homeowners to do home repairs. Learn more about partner families. These efforts work with our building efforts to efficiently and affordably revitalize large areas as to create long-term solutions that can sustain long past Habitat for Humanity’s initial involvement.
Our partnerships with local families, small businesses and organizations are aimed at developing social capital, which is the network that allows communities to thrive. Working within these existing networks ensures our initiatives are intentional and culturally cognizant. Our goal is to provide resources for the community so that they may overcome obstacles to home-ownership and a successful, self-sustaining, revitalized community.
