Neighborhoods Matter.

They affect everything about us – from our health to the way we interact with the world and the people around us. Everyone deserves a neighborhood that provides access to all the amenities and services one could want or need in their daily life – from housing, health care, food, parks, education, and transportation. But as a result of systemic disinvestment and suburbanization, the majority of our neighborhoods have lost at least one of the elements that make them whole. It does not have to be that way.


Neighborhoods affect the health and well-being of the people who inhabit them.


Neighborhoods affect the sustainability of our cities by reducing our carbon footprint.


Neighborhoods affect the economic vitality of our cities by increasing livability and property tax revenue.
