2014 Neighborhood Revitalization Conference to Review Sustaining Efforts in the Future

Each year, our Neighborhood Revitalization Conference brings together people diverse in their profession, but very similar in their commitment to neighborhood building. It is from that foundation we plan the conference, knowing that dedicated people from government, philanthropy, and the private sector all share a similar goal.

The 2014 Neighborhood Revitalization Conference, July 24-25 in Washington, D.C., will pick up where the 2013 event left off in engaging leaders in the fast-paced field of neighborhood revitalization. Yet, this year, there will be an added focus on the future of neighborhood revitalization. We will review efforts to ensure neighborhood revitalization is enduring, lasting beyond changes in administrations.

I’ve been asked why the field of neighborhood revitalization is important to members of the Alliance for Children and Families. In my mind, there’s no question that our sector and our membership base needs to be at the forefront of building neighborhoods of opportunity for all Americans, in every community. The reality is that it’s already happening across the country. Human-serving organizations are recognizing the importance of the unique role they play, not just in being effective service providers, but in being the unique places in their neighborhoods that create hope, impact their immediate surroundings, and change lives.

The Alliance and the Center for the Study of Social Policy have teamed up this year to co-host the conference. We are very happy to have this wonderful partner as we all study the important intersections of place, community, and practice, and forge ahead as innovative leaders that are on the forefront of this important effort.
