Grow Smart writes about us:
Since its founding in 1988, ONE Neighborhood Builders has established itself as a community development leader in Rhode Island, with an enduring commitment to equity. The nonprofit’s mission is to develop affordable housing and engage neighbors across Greater Providence to cultivate healthy, vibrant, and safe communities. To date, ONE|NB has developed 482 affordable apartments; 130 for-sale homes for low- to moderate-income homebuyers; and nearly 34,000 square feet of commercial and community space—totaling more than $128 million of investments. Smart growth principles are reflected in their varied projects, which include rehabbing former historic industrial buildings and developing mixed-use projects. Additionally, after recognizing how lack of internet access during the pandemic divided people along the wealth spectrum, ONE|NB developed a free community Wi-Fi network that serves about 1,000 households.
