Nuestra Señora De La Vivienda
"Our Lady of Housing"
Who We Are
Nuestra Señora De La Vivienda Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
In partnership with the Pulte Family Charitable Foundation,
we are creating a community with safe affordable family housing in Immokalee, Florida.
Our Affordable Housing Initiative
Immokalee is an agricultural community with a large migrant farming population located in Southwest Florida.
Over 40 percent of the population lives below the poverty level in Immokalee. There is a shortage of safe, affordable single-family housing in Immokalee, creating strain on the community's families, students, workforce, and economy.
Together with the Pulte Family Charitable Foundation, we are taking a community-first approach to
focus on safe, affordable housing, early childhood education, and supportive programs
to help families live successful and healthy lives in Immokalee.
We seek to develop affordable single-family homes for rent to improve local housing access and stability while strengthening our nonprofit partnerships for early education and other family-centered initiatives in the community.
