THE PROBLEM: Philadelphia’s most underserved neighborhoods can change from within — but few organizations are lending them a listening ear, training, or resources to do so. Vacant land is linked to depression and poor mental health in Philadelphia neighborhoods, as well as increases in crime.
THE SOLUTION: The holistic approach of Habitat programs combined with the investment of neighbors, businesses, and houses of worship creates cohesion around a shared vision of revitalization. We believe in the power of education and financial literacy as tools to gain financial self-sufficiency and long-term housing stability. We engage in a resident-driven approach to improve quality-of-life through home repairs, green space enhancements, and improvements to community infrastructure. Together, we can empower our residents with the tools they need to continue to work together and maintain their strong, stable communities.
