As part of LISC’s “Building Sustainable Communities” initiative, which focused in bringing together physical redevelopment and the development of human capital (connection between people and place) in the work of community revitalization, Houston LISC invited a select group of neighborhoods in Houston to partner with Houston LISC in the initiative and join the “GO Neighborhoods Program”.
As the network grew, Houston LISC looked at how to cluster investments to neighborhood partners, and created a framework to match LISC resources to each neighborhood’s needs, readiness and capacity. Currently there are 13 neighborhoods in the network, with four at the comprehensive level, shown in dark green on this map.
Comprehensive GO Neighborhoods: Near Northside, OST/South Union, Fifth Ward and Northline.
Collaborative and Connected GO Neighborhoods: Independence Heights, Gulfton, Third Ward, Acres Homes, Kashmere/Houston/Trinity Gardens, Third Ward, Denver Harbor, Magnolia Park, Sunnyside
