About Us

Think for a moment about the image of rural America: close-knit communities where people are hard working and independent, small towns replete with family and friends, places where hard times are met by resilience and strength. Then think about neighborhoods across our nation where life is a constant struggle to get by, jobs are scarce, schools are marginal and it seems like there’s nowhere to turn. That’s where we work.

Every day we work hard to change struggling communities into ones closer to the image of rural America in our minds. It takes more than a handful of affordable apartments. It starts with the hard working families who live there. It takes an award-winning vision that considers the strengths and challenges of each neighborhood on every front. It takes committed public, private and charitable partners. It takes people like you.

We invite you to learn more about Rural Neighborhoods – who we are, how we got started and our plan for the future.
