PRG developed this townhome complex to help stabilize the Phillips Neighborhood. For many years, PRG leased the building to the residents of this self-governed cooperative. This cooperative arrangement reduced housing costs for the sixteen families living here and gave them voice in how the property is managed. Some members of Arbor Commons went on to purchase homes in Phillips, further stabilizing the neighborhood.
Regina Walker, pictured here, was a long-time Arbor Commons resident. She honed her leadership skills by being closely involved in Arbor Commons leadership and as a member of PRG’s board of directors. These experiences have led to big advances in her own career working in organizations that provide affordable rental housing.
