The purpose of the Urban Renaissance Center (URC) Construction Program is to engage participants, and graduates, of the Rebounding Force work readiness program in the renovation of homes and spaces in Civic Park and surrounding areas.


The program provides participants employment to develop work history, while they develop building trades skills. The homes that are renovated through the Construction program are ultimately donated to program graduates or used as short-term housing for Rebounding Force participants.


The URC Construction Program is composed of two components: 1) Basic Skills and 2) Builders License Training. While involved in the URC Construction Program, participants continue to receive wrap-around services and support through the Rebounding Force program.
