  2. Grateful Villages

    Comments Off on Grateful Villages

    Grateful Villages is a non-profit charitable organization focused on the design and implementation of community programs to help spur development, sustainability and empowerment at the local level, with lasting global effects.

    We believe the answers we seek for our community cannot be found in the focus of any one institution but in the very tenets of community itself. Families don’t need houses, they need homes. We live in an environment of shared effect and our equity is woven in the fabric of our community.

    Every garden, every home, every student and teacher, every parent and child. Every hope and opportunity. With every movement we make we write a line in the store that will define a new narrative… one we write together, one we write for our selves.

    Comments Off on University Neighborhood Housing Program (UNHP)

    The mission of University Neighborhood Housing Program (UNHP) is to create, preserve, and improve affordable housing and bring needed resources to the Northwest Bronx. UNHP achieves its mission in three primary ways; as a community-based affordable housing developer, a Bronx-focused researcher, and through the Northwest Bronx Resource Center as a direct-service provider. The majority of our work benefits the Bronx and the northwest Bronx, a series of neighborhoods that are home to primarily Black, Hispanic, and immigrant low-income families and individuals. Our research work and the NYC multifamily building database we created, known as the Building Indicator Project (BIP) has a citywide impact. UNHP is unique in its approach to its mission as each component of our work influences the other. Our work to build financial stability and housing security with Bronx residents informs our research as does our role as an affordable housing developer. Our involvement with Bronx tenants and residents as well as our research efforts guide our work to bring resources to our community.
