Celebrating the Creation and Preservation of Affordable Housing in 2015

The Regional Housing Legal Services development services team had a busy year, and we are proud to share the accomplishments of our partners. They have worked on some truly amazing, creating housing for seniors, families, veterans, youth aging out of foster care, and other low or very low-income individuals.

So often, the spaces we create are not purely units of housing, but include community space for events and gatherings, offices that provide critical services, and beautiful outdoor oases that allow residents to enjoy their neighborhoods. Many of the developments below were also constructed with the environment in mind, prioritizing efficient energy usage and innovative practices to minimize their impact. The innovative nature of these projects reinforces that “home” is not merely four walls.

Our team helped nonprofit developers all over the state break ground and bring their projects to fruition, demonstrating the dedication needed to get the deal done. We are proud to have played a role in all of them!
