PCM Employee Builds Home Through Mutual Self Help Project for
Color Country Community Housing
LAS VEGAS, NV. (August 1, 2012) – Today, Professional Community Management of California, Inc. (PCM) announced that employee Jeremy Blakely built and moved his family into a new home in Mesquite, NV. The project was through Mutual Self Help by Color Country Community Housing (CCCHI), in partnership with the USDA Rural Development Agency. Blakely works in the facilities department at Sun City Mesquite, which is managed by the company.
"PCM is very proud of Jeremy's accomplishment," said Randy Watkins, vice president of PCM Nevada. "From start to finish, Jeremy and five other families invested sweat equity into their new homes."
Sunrise Meadows is the first Mutual Self Help project for Color Country Community Housing in the State of Nevada. Participants undergo an intensive credit qualification process and are then trained by skilled staff to perform various tasks needed to complete their new homes.
Color Country Community Housing is currently building new homes in partnership with low-income families throughout various areas of Southern Utah and Nevada. Six to eight families work together as a group and provide approximately 65% of the labor. This labor not only acts as the down payment, but can reduce the price of the homes by as much as 25%. There may be additional assistance available for qualified families, such as a mortgage with a reduced interest rate, keeping the monthly house payments affordable.
"This was a great opportunity for my family to live and work in a safe and beautiful community," said Blakely. "My colleagues at PCM have been so supportive during this process."
Blakely has worked at Sun City Mesquite for nearly two years.
"People like Jeremy are the kind of committed, industrious and resourceful individuals who make up the PCM family," said Donny Disbro, chief executive officer of PCM. "We commend him for his devotion to his family and community."
