For families to succeed, sometimes the dynamics of their neighborhood have to change. Neighborhood Revitalization is a holistic approach that expands Habitat’s traditional partnership with new homeowners and volunteers to include neighbors and local organizations for a far greater impact.
While new home construction continues to play a vital role, a bigger toolbox that includes repairs and other services allows Habitat to serve more families. Neighborhood Revitalization starts at the grassroots level — with people in the community determining the goals for their neighborhood.
Under the direction of renowned artist Lady Pink, students from New Paltz High School painted a beautiful mural at Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County and the First Evangelical Lutheran Church at 45 Catharine Street. This project was part of our on-going Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative.
