What makes Angel Oak Communities sustainable?
6. Angel Oak believes that affordable housing models in the past did not plan well for repair and maintenance costs and the rising costs of utilities. Because most affordable housing projects are rentals, the only way to cover these rising costs is to increase the rents. This creates a greater financial strain on both the government and it's tenants. And there is no reversing the spiralling costs.
Our model is different. We raise money through families, corporations and private individuals that want to invest in sustainable living, not just affordable living. Our communities are not segregated, they're inclusive. Our buildings will generate power, jobs, food, education, and most importantly a sense of belonging! By investing in the sustainability of the community, we insure its viability for generations to come.
