Mission:

The mission of Restoration Housing is to develop affordable rental properties for the benefit of limited-income families and individuals through the rehabilitation and preservation of historic architectural resources.


Background:

Founded in 2014, Restoration Housing is a community-based, nonprofit developer focusing on the historic preservation of neglected architectural resources for the social benefit of low-income communities. At the core of everything Restoration Housing does is the belief that all people, regardless of circumstance, deserve to live in strong, healthy communities and dignified housing – the catalyst being the reinvestment in our historic built environment.


Programs:

Housing Development through the restoration of blighted and vacant properties for families in need.

Community Impact Development providing affordable rental options for nonprofit organizations seeking to expand services in low to moderate income neighborhoods.

Preservation Consulting for mission-minded developers, nonprofits, and government entities.


Outcomes: 

Restoration Housing’s main objective is to help low to moderate income adults who strive to provide safe, secure, and comfortable homes for themselves and for their dependents, affordable rental housing through the redevelopment of blighted buildings within Roanoke’s Historic Districts. This not only benefits the family in question through less financial burden, better school performance for children, and improved physical and mental health; but supports sustainable neighborhoods by reducing blight and vacancy which increases property values and deters vandalism and crime. Restoration Housing also undertakes community impact projects which provide affordable rental options for nonprofit organizations seeking to expand services in low to moderate income neighborhoods.
