Become Part of a Network Dedicated to Building Stronger, Better Communities
Purpose Built Communities believes meaningful, lasting change requires a long-term commitment from a coalition of community leaders and residents dedicated to a common goal. We welcome a select group of Network Members each year, and all interested groups must undergo a thorough evaluation process. Those that meet our criteria and are willing to commit to our holistic approach to community revitalization are encouraged to seek membership in our Network.
It is imperative for a community revitalization effort to have an established Community Quarterback — a new, single-focus, non-profit that is wholly committed to the project. These leaders must be able to cultivate relationships with public and private partners and investors, local housing authorities, school boards, developers, other non-profits and philanthropic foundations, and local elected officials. The presence of a dynamic leadership team is required for Network Membership. Membership also requires a commitment to other Network Members and the Purpose Built plan for holistic revitalization.
Ready to Join the Network?
Those interested in becoming Network Members must demonstrate a well-conceived plan that includes details about project objectives, goals and timelines, potential obstacles and challenges, and specific details about funding initiatives.
