Wheeler Terrace is the first affordable housing community in DC to simultaneously meet the “Green Communities” standards established by Enterprise Community Partners and obtain a LEED Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (Gold level). In 2009, Community Preservation and Development Corporation [CPDC] completed redevelopment of the distressed property into 116 “green” apartments.
Thenceforth in 2014, CPDC brought in Braveheart Entrepreneurial Youth Camp and its partner One Love=True Change to bring in new, wholistic programming and services for the residents.
Braveheart Entrepreneurial Youth Camp specializes in teaching youth how to translate their experiences into starting their own specialized businesses. In partnership with One Love, we hope to bring a new era of residential programming nation and world-wide. See how unity works? :) http://www.cpdc.org/communities/wheeler-terrace/
