Where the Heart Is annually partners with one neighborhood to instigate overall neighborhood reinvestment. Residents work together with City staff, non-profits, businesses, religious groups and volunteers to stimulate positive physical and social change over the year.
Resident engagement is pivotal to the success of this program. Collectively residents brainstorm ideas, connect resources, identify assets, help neighbors and work together to creatively solve problems and improve their own neighborhood.
Simultaneously the City of Garland is reinvesting in the neighborhood in various ways for example improving streets, updating street lights, improving park access, educating residents and connecting residents to available resources to improve their homes.
