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.

We’re excited to share that our Executive Director, Kenny Mosley has been selected to be a 2023 Truist Foundation Racial Equity Ambassador through Purpose Built Communities. Through this eight-month fellowship program, Mosley will have access to trainings, one on one coaching, and practical strategies to advance racial equity within our neighborhoods and across the Purpose Built Network.

“I’m also really grateful to be on this journey with other Purpose Built Network Members who are also working to create meaningful change at the neighborhood level.” – Kenny Mosley
