Title: Understanding Social Networks In Frazier Courts HOPE VI Development
Author: Buentello, Christopher
Abstract: The HOPE VI program enacted in 1992 represented a shift in public housing by addressing resident's needs through physical design improvements, self-sufficiency programs, and the deconcentration of poverty. Funding through HOPE VI allowed local housing authorities to demolish deteriorated public housing units and replace them with new income-inclusive housing units. The "hope" would be that low income residents would interact with middle income residents to access resources that are normally beyond the reach of low income individuals. This assumes of course that residents will interact amongst each other. Therefore, I conducted a survey of residents at Dallas' Frazier Courts to understand the type and utilization of social interaction within the development. Unfortunately, the results indicated that there is little or no interaction among residents and concerns with safety and management of the development itself.
