“In the summer of 2013, Pleasant would get two phone calls. First, a resumé that she gave to her case manager (Homes for Hope) led to a new job. Then, she learned she could move into a newly constructed development as part of the New Communities Initiative. Today, Pleasant takes advantage of Jazzercise classes in the F.H. Faunteroy Community Enrichment Center, located in the mixed-use complex. 'I moved two blocks, but it feels like I’m a thousand miles away,' Pleasant said. ”–Adopted from the January 8th Washington Post article, Kimberly Pleasant, Lincoln Heights resident
“Living at Temple Courts has been a struggle and a success in itself, especially being a single mother of two. We lived there for eight years with broken elevators, dark hallways, drugs, and destruction in and around the dwellings.....I will never forget the help received while looking for my first home. We truly appreciate HOU and commend them highly on their dedication to our family and all of the Temple Courts residents.”–Angela James, former Temple Courts resident
“Bobbi has been an inspiration to her community, her classmates her family and the HOU Case Management Team. She never once allowed her circumstances to determine her destiny. We look forward to more success and continue to encourage her to reach for the stars. ”–Housing Opportunities Unlimited, case management team

The New Communities Initiative is pleased to release it’s 2015 Annual Report , which highlights the key work and accomplishments of the past year, and provides a snapshot of upcoming milestones for the future. While redevelopment often focuses on the physical elements, or “bricks and mortar,” the 2015 Annual Report showcases the people that live and work in these communities and help make change happen. In our “Faces of NCI” video gallery, you can hear directly from residents, service providers, and our development partners on how New Communities is making an impact.
