2014 Purpose Built Communities Conference Highlights

On behalf of Purpose Built Communities, we are grateful to the incredible presenters, panelists, and most importantly, the 340 attendees from 45 communities across the country who made the 2014 Network Member Conference the best one yet. Charlotte, North Carolina was a perfect backdrop for an inspiring and uplifting gathering that brought together leaders in business, community development, education and government who are all working to make Possibility Take Place—the theme of this year’s conference. The Renaissance West Community Initiative, our host, demonstrated what that means with the transformational work they are doing with their partners in mixed-income housing, education and community wellness, and we are grateful for their leadership and hospitality. We came together out of the belief that with a holistic strategy in places of concentrated poverty we can achieve breakthrough outcomes and change people’s lives for generations to come. Thank you for making this happen every day and for sharing your work with the rest of this growing national movement.
