• 500 New mixed-income housing units will built at Renaissance Heights. Phase one of Columbia Residential will break ground in 2016.
  • 100% Targeted college acceptance rate for our scholars upon graduation. This was achieved by our affiliated Uplift Education network in 2011.
  • $12 million YMCA facility will include an early learning center and Olympic-sized outdoor aquatics facility. A pediatric medical and dental clinic is already open in the community.

Accomplishing more by working together

Renaissance Heights United is a partnership dedicated to the proposition that everyone deserves the opportunity to live and raise their children in communities where they can achieve their full potential. Because entrenched poverty and lack of opportunity is often tied to place, we are place-based and neighborhood-focused.

Reaching Full Potential

Renaissance Heights is a 200 acre site in southeast Fort Worth. Uplift Education, ACH Child and Family Services, Columbia Residential, Cook Children’s Health Care System, and the YMCA have built or are building major facilities on site. North Texas Area Community Health Centers, Inc. and Texas Wesleyan University are close by, and UNT Health Science Center is operating a mobile clinic in the neighborhood.

Creating Access

As a result of the strategic location of many programs and facilities, children living within the 200 acre site (at Columbia at Renaissance) will have access to high-quality housing and many other programs and facilities that support health, well-being, and academic readiness.

To date, more than $125 million has been invested in the site, including 330,000 square feet of retail space, providing neighborhood residents close proximity to a grocery store and other retail/commercial entities.
