OUR MISSION

To seek the peace of the city of Knoxville by restoring blighted homes and strengthening neighborhood communities.

OUR VISION

Formerly blighted homes in neighborhoods are lived in and cared for by their owners, lights are turned on where previously there was darkness, porches are restored to provide space for neighbors to have conversations and develop relationships


OUR WHY 

What does this create?

  • Decrease in morale in the neighborhood

  • Loss of respect and/or fear towards those in the neighborhood

  • Increase in unemployment

  • Decrease in funding for neighborhood schools

  • Lack of investment in kids futures in these areas

Urban blight is a serious problem in parts of Knoxville.

What does this look like?
