What’s Going UP?
As a nonprofit homebuilder, Centro Campesino has built and sold 500 homes in Heritage Village, Centro Villas, Hacienda West and Florida City Village. Our homes are characterized by energy efficiency, durability and gracious designs which build pride in homeownership. We help prospective homebuyers qualify for subsidized mortgages and down payment assistance programs which make homeownership accessible for low to moderate income households.
Florida City Village Phase VII
Centro Campesino is currently in the pre-development stage of ten 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 1650 sq. ft. homes which comprise the final phase of Florida City Village. The owner-occupied development currently has 74 homes, and of these only one has entered foreclosure since 2002.
Education Center Expansion
Through the generous support of Miami-Dade County’s General Obligation Bond Program, Centro Campesino is expanded our Education Center to increase our capacity to serve more children of very low-income. We built two new classrooms, additional restrooms for boys and girls, a full-service kitchen, indoor area for physical education, computer lab and office/storage facilities. The expansion enabled Centro Campesino to provide additional children (ages 5-15) free tutorial and enrichment-based after school and summer camp services.
Centro Campesino regularly seeks land in Florida City and Homestead as a site for new development. The organization welcomes donations of land suitable for single family homes or multi-family developments. Although our resources are limited, our vision, knowledge and commitment equip Centro Campesino to make the American Dream come true for many families each year. With 501 ( C ) ( 3 ) designation from the Internal Revenue Service, land donations to our organization are tax-deductible in accordance with applicable regulations.
