ONE Neighborhood Builders is a nonprofit community development organization dedicated to revitalizing Providence neighborhoods. Olneyville Housing Corporation, founded in 1988, changed its name to ONE Neighborhood Builders when it merged with Community Works Rhode Island in 2015. To date, we have developed 375 affordable apartments and over 115 for-sale homes, as well as more than 50,000 square feet of commercial and community space. These spaces include many properties that were formerly foreclosed and blighted in addition to historic buildings that ONE|NB works to preserve, saving landmarks while creating vibrant spaces to work and live.
In addition to real estate development, ONE|NB invests in individual asset building & community engagement. On the individual level. we work with over 400 families per year to provide free tax preparation services, budgeting assistance, credit counseling, financial capability coaching, homeownership education, and foreclosure prevention. These programs ensure that ONE|NB renters, home-buyers, and community members at large, are financially secure and have the foundation to achieve their personal goals.
