ABOUT

  • Homes are the essence of a healthy, vibrant community. Many people living in concentrated poverty lack affordable, quality housing options. Our model of mixed-income housing offers the environments and amenities to help residents thrive by elevating the standard of living for the lowest-income residents, while providing affordable housing opportunities for residents in higher income brackets.

  • Our model includes a community-specific mix of facilities, programs and services to improve the quality of life and opportunities for residents. Programming includes better access to quality food, health care and recreation, after-school enrichment programs, job training and placement assistance, and better proximity to grocery stores, banks and other commercial amenities.

    Rather than focus on a single component of community change, holistic initiatives like RWCI typically include mixed-income housing, radically improved cradle-to-career educational opportunities, youth and adult development programs, jobs and job training, health and wellness programs, transportation access and recreational opportunities.

  • Breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty needs to start early in life, at the foundation of our upbringing. We can help contribute to a great future by providing high quality educational options for everyone, regardless of income. We can accomplish this through an early childhood education center as well as a pre-K – 8 school.

  • The overall Renaissance community master plan is pursuing LEED-ND (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Neighborhood Development) certification. It is a rigorous third party validation of sustainable planning, design and construction, monitored by the US Green Building Council.
