A New Model of Community Development
Jumpstart is a successful community development program that combines slow, steady growth, scattered site rehab, and a mix of affordable and market-rate housing.
"Jumpstart was created to reduce blight and increase investment in our communities. By offering opportunities for local entrepreneurs, we can keep wealth local. With Jumpstart everyone wins - aspiring developers, longtime residents, and other community partners all benefit from additional investment in their neighborhood," says Ken Weinstein, founder of Jumpstart Germantown and President of Philly Office Retail.
