Since 1980 we have worked diligently to improve the quality of housing and to prevent the displacement of downtown Grand Rapids' low-income residents. At first, we worked building by building, turning vacant or dilapidated buildings into safe, quality apartments. The power of our early initiatives was transformative and contagious. We started block by block and then street by street, until now, we are tackling the revitalization of neighborhoods. Dwelling Place has even gone beyond its historic urban core neighborhoods to help renovate and preserve affordable housing in the suburbs and rural areas of West Michigan.
