Resident Engagement

Our resident engagement services are rooted in a time-tested model of serving residents, including our Community Impact Strategies (CIS) initiatives, which provide space and resources. Then we step back and let residents drive the solutions. As a result of our strategic resident engagement, ECD residents are doing better in school; learning new job skills and finding stable employment; developing financial literacy and growing their savings; and developing new healthy eating and exercise habits.

We also connect residents to service providers through a first-of-its-kind digital platform: Rezility. Developed and incubated by Enterprise, the platform includes a free personalized app that links residents to services, events and programs within their community while enabling service providers to increase the impact and efficiency of their outreach efforts.
