The book includes case studies of the five winners of the 1995 Rudy Bruner Award, including:

Maya Angelou Community Initiative, Portland, Oregon. A "comprehensive strategy for urban renewal that used renovation of a key apartment complex to leverage broad community revitalization in the surrounding neighborhood."

Campus Circle, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A neighborhood revitalization program sponsored by Marquette University. Campus Circle has purchased a large stock of property in a decaying, ninety-square-block area adjacent to the university, where it is developing commercial property, building student housing, and rehabilitating low-cost housing for neighborhood residents.

Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative, Boston, Massachusetts. A community-based organization consisting of residents and representatives of social service agencies, business, youth, and other constituencies. It is active in a large section of Roxbury and Dorchester near downtown Boston. One project, Winthrop Estates, 36 units of owner-occupied housing, was submitted as an example of the group’s work.

It is a non-equity cooperative owned by a non-profit local development corporation and governed by a board made up of tenants plus outside experts. Woodworking manufacturers, crafts people and artists jointly market, share expertise and equipment, and purchase supplies and materials cooperatively. It also functions as a small business incubator.

Restoration of 17 acres at the northeast corner of Central Park, including an 11-acre lake, and the construction of a discovery center Lowertown, St. Paul, Minnesota.
