grow and thrive
WHAT ARE THE ASSETS OF A COMMUNITY?
The people, the location, the architecture, the culture … it’s a little bit of all of these things.
Habitat MontDelco knows that building homes changes lives, but it’s not enough to stabilize neighborhoods and develop communities. The Neighborhood Revitalization program works holistically with communities to identify local assets and goals, stabilize neighborhoods and improve residents’ safety and quality of life.
It starts with physical home repairs for neighborhood homeowners and on blighted properties, and continues with partnerships planning, and program development.

how it works
Neighborhood Revitalization works at the grassroots level - with people in the community determining the goals and through collaboration with residents, local government officials, the faith community and community non-profits. It also works at the macro level with sector leaders in health, education, employment and more. It responds to community aspirations by taking an overall look at needs, and empowering residents and community partners to help their neighborhoods grow and thrive.
