Providence, Rhode Island

One Neighborhood Builders (ONE|NB), a non-profit community development corporation, knew that there was a dramatic need for additional early learning space in the Olneyville neighborhood of Providence. Lack of quality child care was a key issue in the neighborhood plan. Vision combined with a vacant and blighted lot provided a unique opportunity to incorporate early learning space into a mixed use development co-locating Head Start and child care classrooms with 30 units of new, affordable housing. ONE|NB developed and will own the space, leasing it at below market rates to the local, high quality Head Start provider.
