BE THE CHANGE
Through our community revitalization approach, we thoughtfully
invest through veterans into neighborhoods to accelerate job
creation through growth in small businesses and the creative economy, improve community health and safety, and offer quality affordable housing. We engage with city and industry leaders and residents to co-develop
community solutions and programming that support our investments in our neighborhoods’ built environment. Together with our partners, we strive to maintain and diversify a neighborhood’s character while
maximizing long-term affordability and minimizing displacement.

Our efforts are place-based,
Our roots are in Texas
We bring a team approach and the spirit of collaboration, innovative ideas, best practices and community engagement with a strong design aesthetic to create thriving neighborhood revitalization projects. Our projects are designed and coordinated with our communities to maximize long-term
sustainability and minimize displacement.
We partner with community stakeholders to assess market conditions, specify goals
and aspirations, and create community-driven redevelopment plans. Rehab Warriors
and our partners plan not simply to redevelop property but to redirect market
conditions and catalyze regeneration in our neighborhoods.
Rehab Warriors follow a data-driven, evidence-based approach to planning. Our
innovative “Build From Strength” methodology identifies specific target areas that are
economically distressed but physically proximate to community and citywide assets.
We then make a series of investments that multiplies the value and proximity of the
assets into the distressed area, utilizing mechanisms to foster an integrated, inclusive,
and revitalized stable community
Fee Building & Development
Rehab Warriors specializes in scattered-site single-family rehabilitation, but we also
participate in new-construction single-family and multifamily projects. Our work
benefits low- and moderate-income people and places by making innovative use of
financing and subsidies to create quality rental housing and homeownership
opportunities at affordable prices.
Our work blends market-based redevelopment and authentic community power-based organizing to achieve transformational regeneration in distressed neighborhoods. Our approach seeks to leveraging long-term debt by rehabilitating distressed properties, while supporting that investment through strengthening
community equity, safety, and stability. These two prongs create a mutually reinforcing virtuous cycle: strengthening this community secures housing investments, and a housing market is sustained with a strong and safe neighborhood around it.
Our sustained investment in target areas have achieved a sharply-decreased vacancy rate, broadly increased median sales prices, lower crime rates, and increased income diversity, all with no direct displacement of existing residents. Rehab Warriors also participates in more traditional affordable housing by partnering with experienced developers utilizing Low-Income Housing Tax Credits
(LIHTC). These partnerships have created over 500 affordable housing units in five communities in Texas.

rehabilitation, new home site construction, and small commercial spaces. Rehab

and this relationship provides a related support company implementing a community based rehabilitation model. Our single-family rehabilitation pipeline provides the right project sizing and administrative support for smaller subcontractors and suppliers. Scaling the work to fit the workflow of smaller firms substantially increases the participation of locally-based and veteran-owned

"My partners and I were under contract on an out of state multi-family residential garden style apartment complex when our lender decided not to fund the project. The speed and expertise of the team enabled us to get a great deal on the purchase with potential for a lucrative value add project. We had a great experience working with Andy and the team and already have our next deal under contract with them. "
"We had a pretty good amount of real estate experience under our belts (having rented or flipped 9 houses) but we were limited to our own personal finances and therefore limited to one to two houses at a time. Introducing us to capital funds has changed the dynamics of our family. Your personal vision has changed from owning 10 houses, to 50, and our confidence that this was even an achievable goal, has gone from a 75% to 100%. "

“As a veteran, from basic, you are taught and trained
to put service before self. I think this project is in line
with that. So many people have sacrificed for me, and I see it as a benefit to continue to sacrifice and give back to the community.”
