The Healthy Homes, Healthy Neighborhoods - Lincoln program logo


As part of the City's Lincoln District Revitalization Project, our team visited more than 1,300 households and seven community groups, while organizing multiple local events, to share revitalization plans and money-saving resources with residents.

Our resources and services offered savings that fit the needs and interests of any household - renter or owner.
