Revitalization Strategies Project
Efforts focused on renovation of the WB Wicker School on Vance Street. The project is an award winning reuse of a dilapidated building into a multipurpose community center. Other components of the project involved revitalization efforts in the neighborhoods surrounding the school.
These are 2 of the 12 Supportive Housing Units for Transitional Housing for Victims of Domestic Violence in collaboration with HAVEN, the Lee-Harnett Mental Health Department, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Authority, and Section 8 within the Sanford Housing Authority.
