Purpose Built Communities began over ten years ago as an organization, but our philosophy – that every neighborhood should have the resources and amenities it needs to be worthy of the people who live there – is more than twenty-five years in the making. We formed to bring our holistic model for impact to neighborhoods around the country experiencing historic and chronic disinvestment facilitated by federal, state, and local-level policies.
Where We Thrive navigates through the why, how, and what of our work. Each resource explores the meaning behind people, place, and race in the context of neighborhood revitalization and what is required of each of us to move it forward in a way that ensures all children, families, and the neighborhoods they live in can thrive.
