Neighboring Program

We are neighbors lending a hand to our fellow neighbors, striving to understand social issues that affect all of us. In this approach, we gain perspective from the wisdom of one another. The neighboring approach aims to ask more questions than provide answers – it starts with “Who are my neighbors? What issues affect us?” and results in “What can I do to help?” Our Neighboring Program hosts three main efforts, with other ad-hoc volunteer opportunities sprinkled through the year. Opportunities include collection drives, property days, curb appeal, neighborly connections, and more.

Curb Appeal Crew

Lend your perspective to Dwelling Place as you tour our diverse property portfolio and evaluate buildings for attractiveness. Together, we can improve our structures and in turn, people’s lives! Curb Appeal Evaluations consist of a one-to-four-hour experience where small teams visit between one and six properties and make observations about the built environment.

How you help We are not volunteers in a vacuum, peering into the lives of low-income residents from a looking glass. We are neighbors lending a hand to our fellow neighbors, striving to understand social issues that affect all of us.
About us We know there can be beauty and power in the place we call home. A home can evoke a sense of pride and place where respite, restoration, and personal growth can flourish. This is what informs the mission of Dwelling Place and what motivates us to create affordable housing communities across West Michigan. We create homes where residents feel cared for, respected, and uplifted. It is what inspires us to revitalize neighborhoods: the places where people live, work, and play.
