Neighborhood Revitalization

Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) is when Habitat for Humanity partners with the residents of a neighborhood to establish what they believe will make it a better place to live.  The residents determine the projects and they partner with local businesses, government and organizations to accomplish the changes identified.  Habitat partners with the residents in making home repairs as funding is available. Currently we are working on NR in the Aaronville Community in Foley.
