The vision started taking shape in Burleson and has expanded to include a formal partnership in Haltom City. Community revitalization addresses economic development in cities and neighborhoods and makes available resources to help people thrive across DFW. Thanks to people in churches, community-based organizations, and civic organizations who care about their neighbors, families were served the last few years in the Cities of Irving, Everman, Richland Hills and North Richland Hills, Fort Worth, Alvarado, Joshua, Burleson, Blum and Cleburne. New Cities are welcomed to establish a Mended Revitalization Program as seen in Haltom City.
Haltom City (Neighborhood Improvement Program)
To help community members with much needed home repairs, the City of Haltom City has created the Haltom City Neighborhood Improvement Program. Haltom City has partnered in this economic development program with The Mended Network. There are numerous owner-occupied houses in Haltom City exhibiting various stages of decline. This decline has a major impact on the deterioration of the real estate property tax base throughout the city. The Mended Revitalization Program will address the redevelopment of existing housing stock in Haltom City and promote development within the city as a whole.
