The mission of the Western Reserve Revitalization and Management Company,
Inc. (WRRMC) is to be the provider of choice high quality homes and services
for low-to-moderate income families in Cuyahoga County by creating communities
in which everyone feels proud to live. The organization has helped develop
more than 12 housing ventures over the nine years, and is currently completing
four additional housing projects. These ventures have created housing opportunities
for almost 1,000 families through the construction of mid-rise apartments,
townhouses, and single family homes.
WRRMC is the nonprofit development arm of the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing
Authority (CMHA). It plays a vital role in allowing CMHA to better leverage
funding resources to complete projects in support of its mission. In addition
to development activities, WRRMC is an active partner in coordinating special
projects that help improve the quality of life for all residents.
The goal for WRRMC is to allow CMHA to secure the resources necessary for neighborhood
revitalization activities. The organization recognizes that housing cannot be
the only consideration when conceptualizing revitalization plans. Therefore,
WRRMC works continuously to forge strong community partnerships to help bring
additional business, education, and work opportunities into areas surrounding
new housing developments. By challenging designers and architects to think outside
of the box, WRRMC has successfully implemented affordable and sustainable housing
that redefines traditional images of affordable housing.
