Our vision is that in ten years, the individual, building, neighborhood and societal benefits of integrating social, health and educational services into affordable and mixed income housing is widely recognized as prudent policy, and incorporated into the housing and community development financing and regulatory systems.
Theory of Change
The transformation of low opportunity neighborhoods takes a concerted public strategy, generations of time, infrastructure investment and a great deal of funding.
If we are to equalize the landscape of opportunity in a much shorter time period, and for a much lower cost, as a first phase, and not a substitute for the above preferred neighborhood state, we work to bring these elements into existing affordable housing and mixed income communities. We will collect data to test the efficacy of a range of strategies, with the dual goals of improving the lives of the residents we serve and identifying solutions that can scale.
