The Nehemiah House project was launched in 2011 to provide safe, clean, and affordable rental housing for low-income families. HACER received a Neighborhood Stabilization grant through Palm Beach County. With the County’s assistance, HACER acquired and rehabilitated four rental units located in West Palm Beach.
Once the renovations were complete, the units were assigned to low-income families (defined by The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as 50% Area Median Income HUD) or less). The families are paying affordable rent, allowing them to maintain a clean, safe living environment for themselves and their children.
