our community

Neighborhood Revitalization (NR), Habitat for Humanity’s newest initiative, takes a holistic approach to community growth and transformation. Through NR, Habitat Charlotte Region partners with neighborhood associations, residents, faith communities, local government, other area nonprofits, and more to develop and implement a shared vision that meets specific needs identified by the community.

The ultimate mission of Neighborhood Revitalization is community-wide change that empowers residents to take ownership and pride in their neighborhood, and to enhance the quality of life for all its residents.

quality of life framework

Neighborhood Revitalization recognizes the holistic nature of neighborhood priorities to create change across multiple sectors. In order to create change that leads to an improved quality of life, Habitat for Humanity International created the Quality of Life Framework.

Based on learning from Habitat affiliates and other community development experts, the Quality of Life Framework was developed to serve as a customizable and comprehensive approach to understand how the ultimate goal, an improved quality of life, can be achieved in a neighborhood. The Quality of Life framework is Habitat’s hypothesis on how systemic and sustainable change happens in a neighborhood.
