Affordable Housing & Nonprofit Centers: Leveraging Community Development for Greater Impact

02/17/2022 (This Event Has Passed)

Please join us February 17th from 12:30-1:45 PST / 3:30-4:45 EST for an NCN webinar on how nonprofit centers and housing developments can work together to strengthen their communities and build organizational sustainability.

Have you ever thought about redeveloping your nonprofit center to include housing? Are you a center in development curious about the community benefits of including affordable housing in your plans? Are you a housing developer always wondering what to do with the first floor and interested in the value that nonprofit partners could bring to your mixed use development?

The panelists below will share how they use social purpose real estate for good in both the commercial and residential markets and how this collaboration is sparking greater impact and cohesion in their community’s development.
