More Than Just Affordable Housing

At Rio Hondo Community Development Corporation, we are dedicated to supporting and improving the lives of low and moderate income households.

Our three-fold approach focuses on creating, improving, and preserving quality affordable housing, providing economic development opportunities, and empowering under-represented communities to revitalize abandoned properties and utilize community resources effectively.

Quality Affordable Housing:

We believe access to safe and habitable housing is a fundamental right for all individuals and families. Our commitment to creating, improving, and preserving quality affordable housing ensures that low and moderate income households have access to homes that meet their needs.

Through our projects and initiatives, we provide housing options that foster stability, security, and a sense of pride within our communities.

Economic Development Opportunities

We understand the importance of economic empowerment in creating a brighter future. Our mission includes providing economic development opportunities for low and moderate income households.

By fostering entrepreneurship, job creation, and skill-building initiatives, we empower individuals and families to achieve financial independence. Together, we can break barriers and unlock the potential for economic success.

Empowering Under-represented Communities

Every responsible community member should have a voice in shaping the future of their neighborhoods. Our mission is to empower under-represented communities by involving them in decisions about revitalizing abandoned properties and utilizing community resources effectively. Through collaboration and active engagement, we ensure that community members have the opportunity to contribute to the revitalization and growth of their own neighborhoods.

Community Engagement:

Building Stronger Connections

Community engagement is the cornerstone of positive change. We are committed to fostering strong connections and empowering individuals within our communities. Through active participation and collaboration, we can create a thriving community where everyone's voice is heard and makes an impact.

Inclusive Decision-making

Together, we can create solutions that truly address the needs and aspirations of our community. By involving community members in decision-making processes, we ensure that their unique perspectives and experiences shape the direction of our initiatives.

Empowering Local Leadership

Community engagement provides a platform for individuals to develop their leadership skills and take ownership of their neighborhoods. We actively encourage and support residents in becoming leaders within their communities, fostering a sense of pride, responsibility, and empowerment.

Building Relationships

Meaningful community engagement creates a strong foundation of trust and mutual understanding. By fostering open dialogue and active listening, we build relationships that transcend differences and create a sense of unity. Together, we can overcome challenges and work towards shared goals.
