The residents of multifamily housing, many of whom are
Black, have not historically always been treated with
dignity and are more likely to experience housing
instability whether it be due to high late fees or
eviction. We hope to take a proactive approach by
investing in rent payment tools to help residents remain
in their homes, community building activities, and
financial literacy education.
Financial Tools - As of 2021 Flex has
been fully activated within our communities and
residents are now able to take advantage of this
benefit. Monthly information/updates are provided to
residents. Since adoption of the program 832 payments
have been managed through the Flex program.
Relationships - Renewing Management
continues to strengthen our community programs
including our Garden Build program in which employees
build gardens on premise for residents to use and grow
their own produce. The Company also continues to
partner with Renewing Communities to drive community
engagement and improvement. In 2021 we onboarded a

community. They establish relationships and
connections within the community.
