Neighborhood Revitalization

Our Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) program has changed the lives of over 200 families in our community through painting and repairs, making it possible for them to stay in their homes. Neighborhood Revitalization works in partnership with neighborhoods to improve quality of life through repairs and community development. Habitat Greater Orlando empowers residents to establish a community association, facilitate conversations, plan activities, and create a neighborhood action plan. This program helps preserve existing affordable housing for low-income families while simultaneously providing all residents with the tools to work together to maintain their community and be actively involved in shaping their future.

Creating Greater Impact

Our Neighborhood Revitalization focus area (click to enlarge)

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.

NR Focus Neighborhood

Within the Greater Malibu Groves neighborhood, our focus is within the quarter-mile radius surrounding Butler’s Preserve. View the map on the right for more information.
