Our mission

Places To Grow exists to give people a sense of purpose in making affordable housing neighborhoods the best they can be.

We work alongside communities, bringing people together to improve their surroundings and create neighborly places. Simple things like patio gardens, climbing rocks, brighter front doors,  and celebrations can make a difference in how people feel about where they live. We engage residents in outdoor adventures, like designing a neighborhood park or planning trips to state parks, developing new leaders in communities.




Our Method

Every community is unique, so we listen to the people who live and work there. We give everyone a chance to share their ideas for improvement, and the level of community involvement only grows from there. We are passionate about giving people opportunities to invest in their neighborhood, and we have seen how the seeds of leadership, friendship, and hope sown through these initiatives bear lasting fruit.
