By advising at every stage of a project’s development, we have a direct impact on our residents’ lives either through providing property-based programming within our buildings or through broader community initiatives. We work closely with residents and local partners to determine community needs and seek to collaborate with neighborhood organizations best equipped to provide services or support to those underserved or at risk.
