NeighborWorks Lincoln is in the process of identifying 4 to 6 neighborhoods that have experienced historic disinvestment that will become the focus of the organization’s modified community building strategy. These “investment areas” will concentrate resources and attention where there is the greatest opportunity to reverse historic disinvestment, counteract racial inequities, and advance neighborhoods and residents. Through deep engagement and collaboration with residents, stakeholders, advocates, service providers, and other change agents, we will reverse the trends of historically disenfranchised neighborhoods. This work will be framed through an asset-based community development approach that leverages area strengths - as well as the skills and knowledge of collaborating organization - to improve neighborhood equity and independence.
This process is ongoing. Stay tuned to learn more about this work.
