Holistic Approach, Proven Model
The Purpose Built Communities Model was pioneered in the mid-1990s after the successful transformation of the East Lake neighborhood in Atlanta. By applying that holistic model to other areas of concentrated urban poverty around the nation, Purpose Built Communities is helping local leaders make a positive impact in some of this country’s most distressed neighborhoods.
Our purpose is clear. Our mission is urgent.
With the Purpose Built Communities model, a growing number of communities are working to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty, and create a world where geography no longer limits human potential.
