It takes a neighborhood: purpose built communities and neighborhood transformation
AbstractFranklin and Edwards state that concentrated poverty is the problem, and that a holistic, neighborhood based solution that is specific to the circumstances is the essential response. Citing Purpose Built’s successful work in Atlanta, Franklin and Edwards say the response must be integrated, including mixed-income housing, cradle-to-college education, supportive community facilities and resident involvement. Accomplishing the integration requires breaking down silos, especially within government at all levels. While funds are needed, much can be accomplished by redirecting existing funding to what works.
