Who Is NRCDC?
We are a thriving Houston-based Community Development organization educating Houston residents with empowerment tools and resources to expand our local economy and improve our quality of life. Our chief responsibility is highlighting our neighborhood revitalizing initiatives, collaborative projects, and thriving educational programs available for underserved communities.
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 underserved, persistently pursued vehicles to empower these constituents by establishing a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization, NRCDC.
“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.
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.
