Community-Based Real Estate
It is the mission of Coalfield Development “to support a family of social enterprises that inspire the courage to grow, the creativity to transform perceived liabilities into assets, and the community needed to cultivate real opportunity in Appalachia through mentorship, education, and employment”. We believe that safe, decent, and affordable housing is one of the very first steps to a quality life. If one does not have a proper home to return to at the end of the day, their role as an employee, student, or person in general is inhibited from being performed to its highest potential.
Coalfield Development staff are always scanning for more opportunities for mixed-use, mixed-income revitalization projects. Rejuvenating downtowns can be a major strategy for breathing new life into our communities, preserving cultural treasurers, attracting fresh investment, providing opportunities for entrepreneurship and creating quality, affordable housing. Coalfield is the current owner of three rural multi-family rental facilities. Coalfield also operates as developer for revitalization projects that assist in empowering low wealth people and communities. Currently, Coalfield is developing five sites that will provide community empowerment space, commerce hubs, rental units and Airbnb rentals.
Moreover, Coalfield completes developments primarily through partnerships with other organizations. We feel that relationships and partnerships are a key part of life and therefore heavily incorporate it into our development process. With partnerships come diversified points of view, years and types of experience, and therefore a stronger likelihood that a project will succeed. It is collaboration at its best, and we take pride in the many partnerships we have formed.
