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.

A Bold Vision

Renaissance Heights United is a partnership dedicated to the vision that everyone deserves the opportunity to live and raise their children in communities where they can achieve their full potential. Located on a 200-acre site in southeast Fort Worth, Renaissance Heights United partners with Uplift Education, ACH Child and Family Services, Columbia Residential, Cook Children’s Health Care System, the YMCA, and others to make that vision a reality.

Access for All

As a result of the strategic location of many programs and facilities in the neighborhood, children living at Columbia at Renaissance will have access to high-quality housing, health and wellness activities, and academic support programs.

To date, more than $125 million has been invested in the site, including for more than 500,000 square feet of retail space, which will provide neighborhood residents close proximity to a grocery store and other retail opportunities.
