Revitalize Community Development Corp.

Rebuilding Our Community Since 1992

"Revitalizing homes, neighborhoods & lives through preservation, education and community involvement."

Founded in 1992, Revitalize CDC performs critical repairs, modifications and rehabilitation on the homes and non-profit facilities of low-income families with children, the elderly, military veterans and people with disabilities.

We leverage the investments of donors, grantors and volunteers to make significant home repairs that stabilize neighborhoods, strengthen the tax base, and allow elderly homeowners to "age in place."

In the last year we've rebuilt 68 homes across Springfield and Holyoke, including 62 homes on the block at the 4th Annual #GreenNFit Neighborhood Block Rebuild 2016 on Lebanon & Greene Streets, Monson & Nelson Avenue with 90+ sponsors, 38 funders, 62 individual donors, and 1,000 volunteers made neighborhood revitalization a reality!
