Community Stabilization Case Studies: Showcasing Innovative Strategies in the NeighborWorks America Network

Aug 1, 2012
This report highlights the work of eight organizations, members of the NeighborWorks® America network, that are using innovative and promising strategies to accomplish community stabilization goals. All demonstrate success in using a patchwork of local, state and federal resources. These case studies demonstrate that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to community stabilization. However, reliable funding, strong partnerships and deliberate community engagement prove to be essential components of success. Their responses have been shaped by a range of factors, including the strengths and the experience of their individual organizations, the condition of local housing markets, the presence of community assets on which to build and the dictates of available funding sources.
