Welcome to Reclaim Community

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to economic revitalization through community engagement and sustainable adaptive reuse of historic buildings.

About Us

Our Beliefs

We believe in a world where we are responsible stewards of our built resources, and our community’s wealth. Our mission is to solve environmental and economic problems by mobilizing a community to reuse its cultural assets. We do that by preserving our historic buildings, investing in what we already have, to create opportunities for entrepreneurs, artists, and creators. We believe in reusing and restoring the places that tell the stories of the past, in order to show us what possibilities the future holds.
