I started NREUV out of necessity. I saw the need to help community organizations develop their property and maintain control so that they would not be taken advantage of by seasoned developers. NREUV’s work is grounded in collaborating with the community to help it achieve its goals in a holistic manner. NREUV has participated in the development of over 7,500 units of housing and have underwritten approximately $4.5B in real estate development transactions.
I grew up in affordable housing and it is my mission and passion to work on projects that truly make a difference in the community. I believe it is the responsibility of developers to create opportunities for those living in the communities in which they work. The two beneficiaries kept missing each other. PCC makes those connections for people who lack access to opportunities. Employers are elated about finding ready workers and are proud to make an investment in an individual from an underserved community.
