Partner with Us
Partnerships with other organizations are essential to the deep-reaching and synergistic effectiveness of our collective work. Strong and growing partnerships exist in every area of our strategic activity. Through our work with "local pros," training organizations and community partner organizations, we are more effective in reweaving the fabric of communities.
Contractors (“Local Pros”)
Urban Homeworks supports businesses and families living in the neighborhoods where we are developing real estate by hiring local, minority and women-owned subcontractors. More info here.
Through dynamic partnerships with local training organizations, Urban Homeworks equips women, men and youth with the skills needed for employment in the construction industry. Using our sites as a classroom, skilled trainers take participants through a training program that teaches them the basics of construction such as tool usage, construction techniques, theory and basic job skills.
