Residents at the Center

Residents are the heart of our work and the reason behind all we do. That’s why we collaborate with resident and community volunteers, partners and local and federal government agencies to make sure residents access what they're looking for right where they live – whether that’s fresh food, health and wellness programs, financial counseling, or even afterschool classes for kids.
"This is my home, and I have no intentions of leaving." See why resident services matter to people like Ms. Grace, an advocate for her neighbors at the intergenerational Overlook at Oxon Run in D.C.
"I had been living on the street for a very long time. There's a bush outside my window that I used to sleep behind. Now, I'm on the inside looking out." Hear from Walter Jones, a disabled veteran who lives in this mixed-income apartment complex, which breathes new life into the once cultural hub of Black excellence in Richmond, Virginia’s historic neighborhood.
