The Harvey Rice Heritage Center is a mixed-use development that will result in 22 units of affordable housing and supportive services, a Sabin CDC satellite office and community programs developed in partnership with the Vernon Neighborhood Association. Community programming will focus on using art as a means of bringing tenants and neighbors together. The affordable housing units will ensure that low-income residents remain in their community. Sabin CDC’s tenant base is currently 76% African-American and many of these residents have lived in the community all of their lives. Providing affordable housing is critical to supporting low-income residents’ effort to remain in their community where housing rental rates continue to escalate at rates that are well in excess of what is affordable to low-income residents.
