Community Foundation 


"Our Lady of  Housing" 

 Immokalee, Florida

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.
