Starting as a taskforce of the University United Methodist Church in 1989, a partnership of dedicated citizens focused on making a positive change in the Syracuse Greater East Genesee Street Neighborhood and by doing so, proved to be a catalyst for positive and lasting changes. Housing Visions Unlimited, Inc. was formed as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) in 1990 to improve the quality of housing and the quality of life in this neighborhood and to create a model for revitalizing other neighborhoods. Its charter later expanded to include additional census tracks in Syracuse’s east side.
