In 1976, a group of concerned residents of the Powderhorn Park neighborhood formed a nonprofit in response to the economic hardship of the area. Here, reproduced in all its Xeroxed glory, is the original Articles of Incorporation for PRG.
The organization was founded with the intent of making decent, affordable housing available to low and moderate income residents. The 1976 mission and goals of Powderhorn Residents Group (as it was then known) were:
- Safe, decent, affordable housing for low and moderate income people
- Provide homeownership/resident control opportunities
- Provide family housing opportunities
Now, 40 years later, our vision and mission are similar. We combine community-based affordable housing development with education and counseling to help all people and neighborhoods thrive.
As we look back at the past four decades of PRG, please help us continue doing this work for another 40 years by donating to PRG on Give to the Max Day on November 17, 2016.
