The National Urban Housing & Economic Community Development Corporation (NUHECDC) offers a unique and dynamic approach to improving the lives of low- to moderate-income families and their communities through affordable housing, career skills training, living wage jobs, and small business development.


For many urban communities, high unemployment, low home ownership, high rents, low business ownership, and few opportunities are chronic problems.   Most nonprofits and government agencies attack these problems one at a time, but . . . 


What good is job training, if there are no jobs?


What good are more affordable homes if you are unemployed?


What good are jobs that require skills that you don't have?


The NUHECDC is different! We offer:

     1) a well thought-out, comprehensive plan that addresses the many inter-related challenges plaguing urban communities;

     2) tools, resources and opportunities that empower participants to dramatically improve their lives;

     3) a multi-faceted model that can be duplicated to transform distressed communities
