A Neighbor Decides to Stay

A Neighbor Decides to Stay

Community One acquired an abandoned rental house through their whole-house rehab program. Alongside volunteers and partners, Community One gutted the house and restored it to a safe and affordable home. Katrina was renting in the neighborhood. As she saw the work being done on the house and the energy around change in Tepe Park, she decided she wanted to make an intentional decision to stay in the community permanently by purchasing the restored home.
