WHEDco's community development team tours merchant spaces at Southern Boulevard

WHEDco believes that successful affordable housing must be anchored in strong communities that residents can be proud of.

Our comprehensive Community Development Approach includes improving the commercial corridors in the neighborhoods where our affordable housing developments are located. Our typical practice begins with studying the commercial corridor through surveys, one-on-one conversations with local stakeholders and business owners, physical assessments of the neighborhood, and collecting demographic and socioeconomic data. We employ this data to guide our efforts to strengthen the community, and to ensure that local businesses are serving community needs.

Our Community Development team works with local residents to improve neighborhoods and make way for commerce and creativity.
