Together, we are accomplishing great things and reaching new heights.

Working alongside local residents and leaders, Renaissance Heights United serves as the community’s quarterback for neighborhood revitalization in southeast Fort Worth. We strive to honor the history of the community while securing its future.

Mission Statement
To empower Renaissance Heights residents by identifying and eliminating barriers to well-being and success through community partnership.

Vision Statement
We envision a Renaissance Heights Neighborhood where every resident can flourish, and has equitable access to housing, education, healthcare, wellness resources, and pathways to economic prosperity.


Residents First, Collaboration, Inclusivity, Empowerment and Sustainability

Prosperity starts with place.

Renaissance Heights United is a partnership dedicated to the proposition that everyone deserves the opportunity to live and raise their children in communities where they can achieve their full potential. Because entrenched poverty and lack of opportunity is often tied to place, we are place-based and neighborhood-focused. As a Purpose Built Network member, our work focuses on establishing mixed-income housing opportunities, a cradle-to-career education pipeline, and robust community health and wellness programs.

We are grateful for the many partners helping us achieve our objectives, including ACH Child and Family Services, Child Care Associates, the City of Fort Worth, Columbia Renaissance Square, Cook Children’s, Fort Worth ISD Leadership Academy, William M. McDonald YMCA, North Texas Area Community Health Centers, Inc., Purpose Built Communities, Texas Wesleyan University, The Shoppes at Renaissance, and Uplift Education.

Neighborhoods matter. Research proves it.

Our job is to be the connection between businesses, nonprofit organizations and other programs. Together, we can all improve our neighborhoods. Watch how.

One thing I’d say about Renaissance Heights is that it shows you really can’t have any preconceived notions about who can come together and make this work. Different organizations came, and we never had jealousies or competing interests between or among the partners. Everybody came together once they got the vision.

Our Vision for Renaissance Heights

As a leader in Community Development, Renaissance Heights Foundation (RHF), is dedicated to transforming Southeast Fort Worth through our innovative initiatives and collaborative approach. Our mission is rooted in implementing the Purpose Built Communities model, which stands on four pillars: Mixed-Income Housing, Cradle-to-College Career Education, Community Wellness, and Economic Vitality.

Founded on the belief that every community deserves access to quality housing, education, and resources, RHF has proven effective at playing the role of strategist and coordinator and succeeded in enhancing economic mobility in 76105 and surrounding zip codes. We work tirelessly elevating our community initiatives and advocating for the people who call Renaissance Heights home.

In the area of Neighborhood Development (2024-2026), we will prioritize stakeholder-led development of neighborhood infrastructure, funding acquisition, and community support to realize our vision. Current projects include the development of mixed-income apartments, single-family homes, and townhouses, as well as permanent supportive housing rental units in collaboration with HousingChannel, Columbia Residential and the Salvation Army of North Texas.

Going Beyond Housing: We understand the importance of creating vibrant, inclusive community spaces. We are dedicated to advocating for targeted investments in the civic infrastructure, including streetscape improvement, development of Happy Park, creation of new athletic fields and pavilion at the YMCA, and establishment of commercial retail space for small businesses.

As we move forward, we’re eager to highlight Renaissance Heights and Purpose Built Communities as a blueprint for successful community development. Emphasizing forward-thinking, innovative approaches, our aim is to make a lasting, positive impact on the community that will endure for generations.

Experience the transformation with us! Welcome to Renaissance Heights.

In Community,

Kenny Mosley, Executive Director
