The residents of the places we make are our true clients. Housing is a basic need: decent stable housing at an affordable price is a huge benefit that is life changing for many. One of the the most rewarding aspects of doing this is not the awards, or being able to make a living doing what we love to do, but the incredible stories of the lives we’ve been lucky enough to serve.
