Our community engagement program encourages resident involvement in identifying community change initiatives, developing residents capacity to implement changes, and training/enhancing leadership development.  In addition to our ongoing quest to have at least one resident on each block in the neighborhood to serve as a Block Contact. Since 2013, we have increased our community visibility through strong neighborhood outreach efforts. Our community engagement programs include:  Block Contact Training - three (3) training sessions are held each year.Ivanhoe Positive Alternatives for Youth which includes Boy/Girl Scouts, baseball, basketball, football, an Annual Experiential Learning project and periodic "Just for Fun" activities.Resident involvement on organizational committees and at the neighborhood monthly meetings.

Ivanhoe's Home Repair Initiative includes home repair work we do for Ivanhoe residents through the Ivanhoe Minor Home Repair Program and the BRITE TIF Program. Through this program we are able to assist low-income residents with new roofs, energy efficient furnaces, plumbing and electrical upgrades. Ivanhoe was awarded BRITE TIF funding in 2007, from the Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Commission.  With this funding ($250,000 a year for a 10-year period), Ivanhoe assists low-income residents with up to $15,000 in home repairs, with emphasis on curb appeal to enhance the appearance of each block.  This funding is targeted to Ivanhoe's North West Quadrant, 31st Street to 39th Street, Paseo to Michigan.  
 Through these programs, Ivanhoe staff receive applications from residents, make an assessment of needed repairs and prepares a scope of work, and contracts are awarded to contractors.  Ivanhoe staff monitors contractors work to ensure work is completely in  quality manner.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Ivanhoe is continuing to strengthen and develop entrepreneurial activities for increased sustainability. The housing revitalization projects are well underway and continued investments and capacity building in this arena will have significant impacts on Ivanhoe's long-term revenue generating capabilities. Likewise, the health and youth/family initiatives build strong families and individuals who contribute to the community through financial membership, volunteerism and advocacy. The term Health=Wealth has numerous implications and benefits for Ivanhoe, including crime reduction, greater educational attainment, increased property values and higher neighborhood median income levels.The Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council is a strongly supported resident-led neighborhood association/Community Development Corporation (CDC). Ivanhoe's strength as a CDC and its long-term development potential is driven by its relationship with and appreciation of neighborhood residents. High resident involvement significantly reduces gentrification threats, while simultaneously attracting multi-generational and culturally diverse residents, businesses and community service providers. Although many CDC's start with housing development and then work to offer other community services and programming, Ivanhoe's CDC and recent CHDO designation has operated with an integrated health strategy with respect to the build environment, lifestyles/life habits and its homes and amenities. Today, resident involvement and engagement is high - Ivanhoe residents comprise a majority of the Board of Directors, participate on the organization's four major committees, approve major plans such as the Quality of Life Plan, participate in charrettes and visioning sessions that shape the Ivanhoe staff's annual work plans, and evaluate programming. Along with residents, additional key stakeholders - nonprofits, businesses, local governments, faith-based organizations and philanthropic organizations are instrumental in helping move Ivanhoe's vision or revitalization forward.

Ivanhoe's three primary services areas - revitalization, health and youth/family all have diverse community stakeholders and momentum to fulfill its vision as a "thriving community." Space and place matter to Ivanhoe's leaders as they remain committed to implementing projects and programs to protect and grow the neighborhood's authentic identity, leverage its rich cultural diversity, develop and instill ownership and pride as well as strive for life and educational excellence.

Over the years, Ivanhoe has expanded its board to achieve diversity of race, residence, expertise and skills. Four major committees share responsibility with the board for implementing the organization's strategic plan. These committees have been aggressive in implementing more than 100 community change initiatives resulting in positive impact on the quality of life within the neighborhood. More than 250 block contacts are active in distributing information and involving resident in community improvement initiatives.The Nutter Ivanhoe Neighborhood Center is a daily hub of activity which provides office space for staff, volunteers, a City Codes Enforcement Officer, and the two assigned Community Police Officers. The Center is also utilized as a facility for neighborhood meetings, community events and youth and adult programming.  Organizationally, Ivanhoe has achieved Community Development Corporation (CC) status and participates in LISC's NeighborhoodsNow program. There is an active capacity-building initiative in place, addressing fund development and staffing needs to support future growth.
