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.

Who We Are

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.

“ We are sitting on top of each other... a lot of people that do not have housing.... These people will rent 1 rundown trailer to 15 people."

Sonja Reyna, Immoklee Resident 

"Housing is foundational to the needs of a family from physical health, to mental health, social health....if housing is not certain than all those things will crumble."

Andrew VanValin, Pulte Family Charitable Foundation

"We are all struggling so we put together and help each other."

Samatha Tindell, Immoklee Resident
