Housing & Community Redevelopment
At T.A.G., we believe wholeheartedly, that the success of children and young adults is directly relative to the environment in which they are raised. Through our Housing & Community development efforts, we look far beyond just a house, but we are trying to create a positive culture and environment that would contribute to the overall success of the institution of family. By moving house to house, neighborhood to neighborhood, children are impacted on many different levels. Stability adds so much to the life of young people, and it gives them a foundational platform to succeed in life. We also want to instill in families a profound love for communities and neighborhoods so when we help families in need, the spirit of benevolence would pass on from person to person. Again, we are not just committed to a house itself, but we are committed to the community and want to see the face of battered neighborhoods empowered! We serve the community through the following methods.
