Comments: The mission of Providence Community Housing is to foster healthy, diverse and vibrant communities by developing, operating and advocating for affordable, mixed-income housing, supportive services and employment opportunities for individuals, families, seniors and people with special needs in Southeastern Louisiana. St. Peter Claver has been a vital partner to Providence in supporting that mission in the Treme neighborhood. St. Peter Claver School continues to provide quality education and family programming in the Treme neighborhood where we are currently developing 1,500 affordable rental and mixed-income homeownership units as part of our Faubourg Lafitte housing development.

We are thankful that St. Peter Claver School serves the families of Treme regardless of their ability to pay or religious background. The addition to the school is a great improvement to the neighborhood and supports our mission to reduce blight by removing several dilapidated structures. We at Providence enthusiastically support St. Peter Claver Catholic School as they enhance the education of students in Treme' and contribute to the revitalization of the neighborhood.
