AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT

“Building affordable, safe, high quality permanent housing to strengthen communities and provide a strong foundation for low-income women and their families to grow.”

The development of affordable housing is the center of WCRP’s work. We build and operate affordable housing developments from start to finish: finding the sites, designing the houses, raising the money, managing construction and making sure that the women and families who live there become part of a strong and vibrant community.

 

Every WCRP home is carefully designed to meet the needs of low-income women and their families. All units include a washer and dryer, and kitchen windows face an outdoor patio as often as possible so that mothers can keep an eye on their children while tending to other household duties.Floor plans are roomy and family- oriented, and many are wheelchair accessible as well.

 

At WCRP, residents and neighbors are involved in every part of housing design. This inclusive process guarantees that our housing meets the real-life needs of the women and families who will actually live there. We work hard to construct well-designed, innovative places to live, overcoming any obstacle to ensure that the production and quality of our desperately needed housing is never compromised.
