The Work We’re Doing
Blueprint 15 is a non-profit organization partnering with Syracuse Housing Authority, SCSD, the city of Syracuse and other community partners to advance a holistic approach to neighborhood well-being that reflects the needs and wants of neighborhood residents.
We believe that neighborhoods are not just the places where we live. Neighborhoods are where we find and build community and future prosperity. We work to ensure that residents will have access and opportunity to safe and affordable places to live, engaging and effective schools, and vital health services because this not only leads to resilient and thriving neighborhoods, it leads to resilient and thriving people. Working alongside residents and local stakeholders, we help to prioritize initiatives and leverage resources across three main pillars:
a cradle-to-college/career education pathway
high-quality mixed income housing
community wellness programs
Our community is so much more than the decades of disinvestment and discrimination that it’s faced and continues to grapple with. Our residents are bold and resilient leaders who deserve to live in a neighborhood with quality housing, health, educational, and socio-economic opportunities that are accessible and family-centered. In order to accomplish this, we must work collaboratively and in new ways by creating inclusive strategies that will help all neighbors participate, prosper and reach their fullest potential.
