Who Does the Work?

On PRG-rehabbed houses in Minneapolis, 50% of skilled and 79% of unskilled labor has been done by workers of color, many of them residents of Minneapolis.

That means hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in significant economic opportunities for the people and communities most negatively affected by the recession.

By proactively advertising work opportunities to contractors who are Minneapolis residents and people of color—and by working supportively with small business owners—PRG adds another bottom line to our mission-driven work. The product of housing redevelopment stabilizes neighborhoods and helps families prosper. The process—the work itself—does the same for those whose skills and labor make that physical redevelopment possible, so more dollars stay in the community they’re intended to benefit.

  • PRG is by far one of the best non-profits serving the housing needs of our community. I recommend their homebuyer counseling services to my first-time homebuyers all the time.
