Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia & LaSalle University
OARC partnered with Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia and LaSalle University to expand on the re-development of East Germantown. Habitat Philadelphia recently purchased two properties from OARC that will be transformed into three bedroom homes with the support of Habitat volunteers and partner families as well as Beneficial Bank, a new Build Day sponsor of the project. By late summer, the newly renovated homes will be available for sale to Habitat partner families via zero interest mortgages.
The expansion came out of a model for partnership that includes Habitat Philadelphia as the developer, OARC as the community development planner, and LaSalle University as an institutional anchor with a commitment to stabilizing and improving the neighborhoods surrounding its campus.
