When you move into a neighborhood do you stay there or do you live in the neighborhood? The difference is your involvement within the community that you are now a stakeholder of. It is not all about where you live. It Is about what you do in the place where you live.
When you choose a neighborhood to live in and it stems around the word “Good” Good schools, Good houses, Good doctors and Good stores. Even in neighborhoods where the incomes are historically lower, like Augusta, Ga Richmond County zip codes 30901 and 30906, there is still a sense of community and all of the “Good” words. Take time not to just drive through looking and the cars and the people, but engage, get to know the people in the area. You may just find an opportunity for a good deal on a house with some good neighbors.
US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) says in the poster :Many variables can shape a child’s outcome in life–like the zip code where a child grows up. That’s because not all neighborhoods have the same opportunities and resources, such as quality schools, transportation, housing, healthcare, food and jobs. The good news is that there are many ways to improve our communities so that everyone has a fair chance to succeed, regardless of zip code. You can play a vital role in your local community.
