A Renaissance in Charlotte

Renaissance West Community Initiative (RWCI) is driving a collaborative approach to holistic community redevelopment. The initiatives focuses on multiple critical factors, including mixed-income housing, educational opportunities, youth and adult development programs, health and wellness services and commercial investment.

The Essentials to Success

The redevelopment of Boulevard Homes provides the neighborhood the opportunity to benefit from a holistic community development effort. The Renaissance West Community Initiative is working to ensure children and families in this community have the resources they need to be successful, including a premier educational village.

Education is the Centerpiece

The newly constructed school will serve as a centerpiece for the community, and integrate wraparound services, such as health care and academic enrichment programs. As a community school, the facility will be open extended hours and provide additional programs and community activities.
