Building an Enriched Neighborhood® is not as simple as offering services. It is an incorporation of a community building model that defines what services, in what order and how these interact with the developmental exchange between neighbors as well as the intentional creation of partnerships with service providers who have adapted stellar services for work with low-income families. The results should be to empower families to be self-sufficient and move into the middle class due to access to improved education, health, advocacy, and homeownership.
