Homes of Hope Before & After

CONNECTED COMMUNITIES

 

Through our affordable housing initiatives across South Carolina, we’ve discovered a need for community and economic impact through mixed-use developments. Families and individuals in our neighborhoods can achieve better life success if commercial spaces like small business and job-training facilities are easily accessible. 

We completed our first mixed-use development in 2018 through the renovation of the former 1st National Bank building in downtown Clinton, South Carolina. Three small businesses occupy the first-floor retail space, while three apartments on the upper level provide downtown living options for local residents. Construction continues in Clinton on a second project in an abandoned retail space. 

Historic and abandoned building tax credits are often available for these types of developments, and income generated through commercial projects can be used to offset the costs of producing affordable housing nearby. This sustainable model allows for continued economic impact as future mixed-use projects materialize.
