HEAD SHOT TBOOTY REV

TERRY BOOTY

Business

Developing housing in urban areas is not a new challenge. However, developing quality workforce housing and including the members of the community in the decision making process has always been “the challenge.” Typically the people that matter the most are leveraged out of the deal early in the development timeline, and projects do not have the sustainable impact on communities as intended.

Terry has proven that he can change that in projects over California and south Florida. Urban Farmers Inc is an alternative to status quo housing developer. Terry's company offers a more equitable solution to non-profit and faith-based organizations to develop quality workforce housing. They educate their partners on the development process, analyze their financial objectives and social enterprise goals; then they create a comprehensive plan that is responsive to both. Through this process, they empower their partners to have a sustainable impact on their community.
