Who Is NRCDC?
The Neighborhood Recovery Community Development Corporation (NRCDC) was founded in 1990 by Rev. William A. Lawson and Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza who had partnered to found the “Campaign For The Homeless.” The two, who had always advocated for affordable and decent housing in the inner city and fair treatment of the poor and downtrodden, persistently pursued vehicles to empower these constituents by establishing a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization, NRCDC. While collaborating with local partners, organizations, and engaging in joint ventures, our Founders took positive action and intentional steps to empower, educate, and engage Houston communities in the areas of housing development, community revitalization, economic development and education.
“at the base of all we do is the empowerment of the communities we serve”
Our Core Beliefs.
We envision the creation of thriving self-reliant, inclusive communities in inner city Houston.
What Our Residents Are Saying…
I am a single parent of a 2022 high school graduate that was long overdue in buying a home. Since 2009, I was a part of the Neighborhood Recovery Community Development program. I had to renew the home buying certificate each year since I was not ready to purchase a home. For the last 34 years, I’ve wanted to own my own home, however the timing was never right. The NRCDC process was thorough and pain free. NRCDC provided me with good advice to help me get my credit straightened out and to prepare myself for the journey to home ownership.
