Neighborhood Revitalization

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 Program (NR) 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 (RENEW).

Recent RENEW Project

During the week of June 15th – 19th Grace United Methodist Church of Naperville, Illinois, brought its Youth Summer Mission Group to Pensacola to work on critical repairs on homes in the Brownsville area.  With a 100 skilled volunteers, the group assisted our Neighborhood Revitalization team in repair efforts in the Pensacola area thanks to the help of our new Pensacola Habitat home repair program named RENEW (Rebuild & Energize Neighborhoods by Empowering from Within;  see above).

Both Pensacola Habitat for Humanity and the Grace United Methodist Church of Naperville’s Youth Summer Mission Group were excited to embark on this unique partnership that will add longevity to the homes in the Brownsville area. The youth group made repairs to the homes and helped with yard maintenance and any other items that will enhance the homes and the neighborhoods as much as possible.
