Types of Affordable Housing Built and Preserved by PUSH Ministry:
PUSH Ministry is an incredible organization that is dedicated to building and preserving affordable housing for low-income communities. Through our tireless efforts, we have constructed and rehabilitated commercial, multifamily, and single-family residential properties across the Metro Atlanta area.
Our hardworking and dedicated staff have worked tirelessly to create innovative solutions to the housing crisis that plagues many communities.
PUSH Ministry's approach to building and preserving affordable housing is a simple yet effective one; we work directly with the community to identify the best solution for their particular needs. We identify and acquire land, design and develop new properties, and work with local authorities to secure the necessary permits and approvals.
In addition to building new properties, PUSH Ministry also works to rehabilitate existing structures. We work with local partners to identify and acquire properties that are in need of repair and renovation. Once acquired, PUSH Ministry works to ensure that the properties are brought up to code and are safe and secure for the residents.
PUSH Ministry's work has been a godsend for many communities across the country. From providing affordable homes to creating jobs and stimulating the local economy, PUSH Ministry has been instrumental in creating a better future for many people.
Equitable Hiring: PUSH Ministry is dedicated to providing opportunities for minority communities in low-income areas. We recognize the importance of keeping funds circulating within the community, so we've made it a priority to hire skilled labor from these communities. PUSH Ministry works to ensure that our hires have the necessary skills to complete projects, while also providing access to resources and training to help them advance their knowledge and experience. By investing in our local community, PUSH Ministry is helping to create a more prosperous and stable future for everyone.
