“Neighborhood Revitalization is not only an element of what we do; it’s part of our DNA.”

about neighborhood revitalization (nr)
While many think Habitat for Humanity’s mission is simply to build homes, that isn’t the case. Our organization is also committed to revitalizing and empowering neighborhoods within the Lafayette community and encouraging others to do the same.

history of nr
Habitat for Humanity International began NR in 2010 to help affiliates transform neighborhoods for the better by focusing on residents, nonprofits, businesses, education, local governments, and communities of faith. Lafayette’s Habitat affiliate began NR in 2013. While we complete many NR projects of our own with the help of volunteers, we also encourage churches, organizations, and individuals to take on their own NR projects, which we are happy to assist with.
