Rebuild Communities, a Henderson based nonprofit, held a meeting Friday of community officials and leaders to hold initial discussions regarding a five-year plan to address housing problems in Henderson and associated issues.
Edythe Thompson, a Henderson resident and executive director of Rebuild Communities, said that Friday's meeting was just an introduction to a much larger plan for Henderson.
"The next step is we'll be working with some key stakeholders to establish an advisory board, and then we will sponsor a series of meetings targeted to the different areas that are (issues),"Thompson said.
Rebuild Communities is an offshoot of Rebuild Durham, an organization with a focus to provide affordable housing, support neighborhood stability, and aid crime prevention in otherwise stable neighborhoods."
Our Goal is to build on our current model of acquiring vacant and abandoned properties that are a blight on Durham neighborhoods and renovate them into safe, decent, well maintained affordable rentals. As a non-profit entity, Rebuild Durham’s focus is to provide affordable housing, support neighborhood stability, and aid crime prevention in otherwise stable neighborhoods.
