Is Philadelphia's Healthy Rowhouse Project an Answer to Gentrification?
The Healthy Rowhouse Project, is a conglomeration of architects, designers, doctors, community development groups and housing experts working to find a way to help low-income Philadelphians fix up their houses. Founded last December by the Design Advocacy Group, HRP’s mission is simple: Keep people in their homes. But its effects could be revolutionary: Imagine changing the story of Philly's great progress from one where only half the population benefits, to one where everyone does—black, white, poorer, richer, old, young. Nothing like that, on a large scale, has ever happened.
