Neighborhood Revitalization

What is the Neighborhood Revitalization program?

Pensacola Habitat for Humanity has identified the need to expand housing services beyond new home construction and to incorporate broader community development projects into its work.

Through continuous outreach and meetings with residents and community leaders, Pensacola Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) program  works to identify the greatest revitalization needs within communities.

The NR Program expands Pensacola Habitat’s traditional housing services to include community collaboration for neighborhood enhancement activities (NR Community Pride), Community Development, and repair and renovation of affordable homes.

Community Pride

Pensacola Habitat for Humanity helps neighborhoods within the city and county to become active and involved by organizing volunteers and other resources to assist with projects that enhance neighborhoods.

The NR Community Pride Program oversees projects such as:

  • Vacant lot or public R-O-W clean ups
  • Painting homes
  • Minor home repairs
  • Handicap accessibility accommodations
  • Landscaping of public space

Community Development

Pensacola Habitat for Humanity’s Neighborhood Revitalization program creates opportunities for residents to learn about community development processes and come together to develop neighborhood priorities and plans, and develop into more formalized neighborhood associations.

Pensacola Habitat’s NR Coordinator, who is a certified planner, educates, guides, and empowers residents in ways that result in them becoming more involved in local governmental decision making, developing long-term plans and visions for their communities, and pursing resources needed to implement their revitalization needs.
