Pleasant City…

April 4, 2017, Pleasant City, West Palm Beach –

Mayor Jeri Muoio and West Palm Beach officials celebrated with Neighborhood Renaissance and first-time homebuyer, Craig Coleman dreams come true for 3 new homeowners.  The newly built 3 and 4 bedroom homes are within the financial reach of working families with prices starting at $110,000.  It has been more than a decade since new single-family homes have been constructed in Pleasant City, a historic African-American neighborhood located in the City’s north end. The City of West Palm Beach provided a $328,000 federal HOME grant and donated land needed to make the homes affordable.

A Wish Comes True…

Liz Santiago moved to Palm Beach County from Puerto Rico after attending a family wedding many years ago.  Even though she works two jobs, Liz was able to afford only a small apartment, which was just large enough for her and her youngest daughter.  Her two older children still live and attend school in Puerto Rico. She wished for the day that she would be able to afford to buy a home large enough to reunite her entire family under one roof… “I have been searching for a place that was large enough for my entire family but could not find anything that I could afford.  I doubted that I would ever own a home. Neighborhood Renaissance gave me the opportunity to buy a quality home that I am proud of.”  With the purchase of her new three bedroom home in West Palm Beach through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, Liz’s wish came true.
