What It Is

Where the Heart Is creates and sustains vibrant, thriving neighborhoods through physical, social and community enhancements including:

  • Community – bring everyone to the table to pool resources, leverage skills and man power to achieve neighborhood success
  • Physical – promote home improvement and neighborhood wide projects on Neighbors Helping Neighbors Day
  • Social – educate, equip and empower residents to collectively improve their neighborhood

How It Works

In partnership with you, your neighbors, the City of Garland and other allies, we are strengthening Garland one neighborhood at a time. The process includes:

  • Evaluate the targeted neighborhood
  • Identify neighborhood needs, potential projects and community partners
  • Engage residents and community partners for ideas, feedback and action
  • Improve curb appeal and neighborhood assets in partnership with residents on Neighbors Helping Neighbors Day
  • Celebrate a job well done and sustain engagement in the neighborhood
