neighborhood revitalization

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

Jonathan Reckford, CEO, Habitat for Humanity International

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.


of 240 nr affiliates

While there are more than 1,500 Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the United States, less than 240 of these affiliates offer NR. We’re proud to serve the Lafayette community in this capacity.

Lafayette neighborhoods

Since beginning NR in Lafayette in 2013, we have adopted and made strides in two communities: Wabash Avenue & Edgelea

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.

If you need assistance with a home maintenance project or are interested in community development, please contact our office.

NR can’t better Lafayette neighborhoods without the help of volunteers. Learn more about volunteering with NR and Habitat.
