The Orlando Business Journal has highlighted the efforts of local CEOs to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic, including Shannon Nazworth of Ability Housing. A short excerpt:
“In the end, this is a crisis that has been a long time brewing. If anything, it’s highlighted the systemic issues we’ve had. If you don’t have a place to stay home, quarantine yourself, you’re very much at risk.”
Ability Housing has three properties in the area, including two in development and the 166-unit Village on Mercy in northwest Orlando. It opened last year, and is at occupancy, with a 12-month wait list.
Addressing affordable housing is not only important because of the safety and stability it provides for local residents. The construction of more units brings construction jobs and tax revenue desperately needed now, Nazworth said.”
