What is Neighborhood Renewal?

Neighborhood Renewal (ServErie 365) – 365 days a year, we will serve East 6th to East 12th and Holland Street to Wayne Street, an area we now refer to as ‘the footprint’. We partner with all the organization within and surrounding the footprint to connect those residents to the resources they need or would otherwise not have access to. We assist with exterior code compliance issues, service projects for residents, connect those residents with agencies for emergency needs, and also we are developing workforce development. 

Who does neighborhood renewal serve?

Agencies, adults, children, young adults, homeowners, renters, landlords, government – anyone that needs to be connected to a resource.

How can volunteers get involved?

Volunteers can help residents with code compliance. You will work with a site leader or a contractor to help someone in the footprint to renovate their home. 1) lead a project, 2) be a part of a team, 3) offer a skill – concrete, painting, landscaping, roofing, masonry, 4) offer relationships, 5) offer prayer – pray for the footprint.
