Renaissance Heights is a historic community in Fort Worth, Texas that is positioned for bold new possibilities.

For nearly 100 years, the Mason Heights area in southeast Fort Worth functioned as an orphanage operated by the Masonic Lodge. When funding dried up, the Masons closed the orphanage and then sold the land in 2005. Today the area is home to an emerging 200 acre master-planned, mixed-use development that will provide exciting new opportunities.

Together We Grow With Each New Day

Since 2015, we have utilized our integrated holistic approach to community revitalization to build a stronger, healthier and more equitable community in Renaissance Heights and ensure lasting, sustainable success. As the Community Quarterback organization in southeast, Fort Worth, we work within a defined neighborhood to provide programs and resources to ensure equitable access to Cradle-to-College Education, Quality Mixed-Income Housing and Community Wellness programs that benefit all neighbors. The successful transformation in Renaissance Heights amplifies a blueprint for establishing holistic neighborhood revitalization utilizing the national model created by Purpose Built Communities, which continues to build strong, economically diverse communities that thrive across the country.

Through 2022, I’ve worked closely with our partners and supporters to realize that to achieve breakthrough outcomes, we must build upon lessons learned, understand that community context has changed, and enhance the collective story of impact. In an eventful year of notable milestones and organizational change, Renaissance Heights Foundation remains committed on offering hope and opportunity to our community.
