In 2009, Adopt-A-Family joined a consortium of local entities led by the Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency (LWCRA) to buy, rehabilitate, and sell foreclosed properties in the city of Lake Worth through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2.
Today, the program is comprised of 24 rehabilitated units scattered throughout the city of Lake Worth. Residents pay roughly one-third of fair market rent for the area and are connected to support services and resources through comprehensive case management.

Enterprise Community Partners visited Lake Worth to spotlight innovative partnerships and collaboration that made this project possible:
