REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT
Home matters and everyone deserves a quality place to call home and a neighborhood to belong to. NEST is committed to an unwavering design commitment to quality, comfortability, healthy, carbon and cost-saving green homes with eco-friendly building materials and energy-efficient appliances for a greener tomorrow. Truly redefining the definition of affordable housing.
COMMUNITY BUILDING & EMPOWERMENT
Our Community Building and Empowerment (CB&E) program supports local residents’ engagement, leadership, and participation in their communities – specifically throughout the Crownbrook and NEWPAC neighborhoods (part of the North End of Waterbury); our target neighborhood.
For a community to thrive, especially economically, it requires community-based decision making and access to basic financial services, affordable credit, and investment capital. Injecting these important investment to assist families and small businesses will make a substantial difference in the health of not only our borrower’s lives, but also the community.
