Improving Outcomes for Residents Through Innovative Community Development Practices

At Enterprise, we see communities as interdependent systems of residents, services, buildings and infrastructure. We believe that creative placemaking, which we define as the integration of culture and creativity in community development, is an important next step in their evolution.

Thanks to the generous support of The Kresge Foundation, we are developing best practices in connecting residents to services and programs by integrating creative and culturally relevant strategies into the core work of community development organizations to improve social, environmental, economic and health outcomes. In addition, as part of our strategy in Detroit, Kresge has partnered with us to revitalize the neighborhoods of Winship Community and Jefferson Chalmers. 

Enterprise has been collaborating with The Kresge Foundation for more than 15 years and has received nearly $10 million in support for a variety of community development innovations.
