West Palm Beach, FL – Neighborhood Renaissance closed on the sale of its first Lease-Purchase home through its Community Land Trust (CLT) toJanita Finleyon April 3, 2012. The program allowed Ms. Finley to rent her three bedroom single-family home for the past three years while she saved funds for a down payment. PNC Bank made the construction loan to build the house located in the Northwood Neighborhood of West Palm Beach at a time when property values were higher. Because of their commitment to preserving neighborhoods and helping first-time homebuyers they allowed Neighborhood Renaissance to sell the home to Ms. Finley for less than their loan amount. United Way also matched each dollar saved by Ms. Finley with two dollars through their Individual Development Account Program that helps first-time homebuyers like Janita to accumulate savings.
During Janita’s house hunt it became apparent to her that she needed to save more money before she could purchase a quality home for herself and her daughter that did not need costly repairs; however, with earnings as a radiology file clerk, Ms. Finley found it impossible to save for a down payment while paying the high cost of rent. Neighborhood Renaissance developed a Lease-Purchase program for potential homeowners like Janita, who need additional time to accumulate savings and/or address minor credit issues, and who need a reasonably priced rental home that they can ultimately purchase. As a participant in the Lease – Purchase program, Janita received help with budgeting and developed a savings plan, plus she became accustomed to the responsibilities of homeownership like maintaining her yard, which she continues to be very proud of. In the words of Janita, “I am so happy this day finally came and it was worth the wait.”
Neighborhood Renaissance’s C LT provides an alternative to renting and places homeownership within the financial reach of more working people. This is accomplished by removing the cost of land from the purchase price, therefore only selling the house to the buyer. This program benefits the community as well because it preserves quality homes and the public investments used to create them for future generations of first-time homebuyers.
Two CLT single-family homes located in Northwood are available now for Lease-Purchase and an additional 11 three and four bedroom homes will be available in the next three months for future homeowners like Janita. Neighborhood Renaissance is now taking applications. To apply, please contact Lashea Brooks or Christina Hewitt at (561) 832-6776.

West Palm Beach, Florida – January 4, 2010. Neighborhood Renaissance, Inc. was the proud recipient of $50,000 from the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, which was awarded to stem the tide of low-income tenant displacement and to help prevent homelessness. The grant was made possible through an endowment by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. We were one of eight nonprofit organizations to receive funds in this highly competitive funding round. All the programs funded are working to increase access to food assistance or to provide immediate shelter for either the homeless or those who could potentially become homeless.
The grant will be leveraged with additional capital funding from Palm Beach County’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program for multiple efforts we are undertaking to reclaim foreclosed properties as affordable rental and lease-to-purchase homes. Our first initiative is to acquire and renovate bank-owned properties located in unincorporated West Palm Beach. We are also assisting the Village of Wellington to purchase and rehab bank-owned properties in Wellington’s transitional neighborhoods for lease-to-purchase by low-income families. Secondly, efforts are underway to increase our capacity to preserve existing rental housing that is at risk of being lost due to disinvestment, market pressure, or expiring affordable housing restrictions. Many of these homes were originally built with public funding. It is our intention to acquire and upgrade these homes and maintain their affordability for future generations.
Founded in 1992, Neighborhood Renaissance is a comprehensive nonprofit community development corporation dedicated to creating and preserving strong neighborhoods and homes within the financial reach of low -and moderate-income working families. Originally based in West Palm Beach’s North End, the organization expanded its geographic service area county-wide. We have helped over 65 low-income households to become homeowners, provided housing counseling assistance to over 1,000 individuals and have built 33 affordable homes resulting in an $8 million investment in Northwood’s poorest neighborhoods. We have also provided small business assistance to over 150 low and moderate income entrepreneurs in the Northwood Village resulting in over 115 jobs. In addition, in partnership with the Westgate-Belvedere Community Redevelopment Agency we are in the process of developing 13 new affordable homes in the Westgate neighborhood. For more information about Neighborhood Renaissance’s affordable housing opportunities please call (561) 832-6776
The goals of the Neighborhood Renaissance Rental Preservation Program are to save and upgrade existing rental housing and to reclaim vacant/foreclosed properties for permanently affordable housing. Demand for decent and affordable rental housing is high in Palm Beach County due to condo conversions, the number of foreclosed homeowners newly entering the rental market, and the loss of rental properties to foreclosure. The loss of smaller 1 – 4 unit rental properties is troubling for several reasons. These properties are often more affordable than apartments in newer, multi-family developments, which have relatively more amenities. Furthermore, 1- 4 unit rental homes typically accommodate large families that do not fit comfortably into large multi-family complexes.
We have targeted the preservation and upgrading of rental properties for occupancy by low-income working families at risk of becoming homeless and who have the most difficulty finding and keeping decent and affordable housing. We also seek to preserve affordable rental properties with convenient access to public transportation, near job centers and which are located in established neighborhoods. This strategy will help to stem the tide of low-income working families being displaced during the foreclosure crisis and preserve affordable rental homes for the long-term.
