Influence of the Home Preservation Initiative on Health of Mantua Residents

The HPI, sponsored in-part by Philadelphia LISC, works with repair partners Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia and Rebuilding Together Philadelphia, and outreach and intake partners, People’s Emergency Center and Mount Vernon Manor CDC to provide home repairs for residents in Mantua, a neighborhood in West Philadelphia. They coordinate multiple services to deliver quality repairs in a more cost-effective manner. The HPI aims to improve the safety, energy-efficiency and overall quality of homes for low-income residents of West Philadelphia. The overall improvement of the community’s housing stock helps to preserve affordable homeownership and improves quality of life by beautifying the neighborhood.

The Drexel Urban Health Collaborative partnered with the HPI to help understand the experience of residents who received home repairs. The goal was to identify the ways in which their health and neighborhoods are affected by housing conditions and home repairs.
