The Bright Future Plan

The Bright Future Campaign is a $9 million plan to preserve affordability and improve the quality of life for the entire neighborhood of Roosevelt Park, a 450-acre area that includes more than 6,300 people. It is an epic goal. But Habitat Kent is poised to capitalize on its 35 years of experience to achieve this trailblazing project. Just imagine what is possible when we all work together!

WE BELIEVE THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT IN ROOSEVELT PARK

3 YEARS. 3 GOALS. $9 MILLION.

INVESTING IN 400 HOMES
Through homeownership, critical repairs, rehabs, and block projects, we will have an impact on nearly 1 in 4 homes in Roosevelt Park.

See where we’re building.

EMPOWERING NEIGHBORHOOD LEADERS
100 neighbors will be engaged in leadership and advocacy training.

BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO BUILD PLAZA ROOSEVELT
We are convening 9 other organizations and groups to bring improved housing, expanded healthcare, education, and economic opportunities to the neighborhood on a 5.5-acre site.

Thank you to all who are helping build a bright future for the Roosevelt Park neighborhood!
