saca developmentFor a quarter century, SACA Development has delivered affordable housing and economic development to the Historic Southeast Neighborhood. Success has been punctuated by great projects like:

palm street lancaster paNew southeast neighborhoods are the result of Homeownership Choice - an ongoing SACA Development program in partnership with the Pennsylvania Housing and Finance Agency, the Wachovia Regional Foundation, the City of Lancaster and others. This program delivers SACA Development’s prime objective to create equity wealth in the southeast by producing a total of 40 new modern family townhomes.

locust and north stRedevelopment challenges in the southeast include narrow streets, parking and aging red brick row houses that capture area history but are too small for today’s families. Homeownership Choice townhomes find creative ways to solve these problems and the Palm Neighborhood design has been honored with a prestigious Lancaster County Planning Commission Envision Award.

One last critical step for all SACA Development Homeownership Choice projects: the creation of a successful, active and independent neighborhood association that safeguards the community’s investment.

This important economic development project, part of the City of Lancaster’s comprehensive plan since 1998, opened its doors to business tenants and quickly became fully occupied.

The attractive and revitalized structure provides space for the Belco Credit Union and is the new home of Pl@za Comunitaria, a SACA workforce initiative that provides career, job and education opportunities in the heart of the neighborhood.

plaza Pl@za Comunitaria operates in partnership with SACA, the Lancaster Workforce Investment Board and others to serve over 150 clients a day. Bilingual career counselors help with job referrals, resume and interview skills, career advice, skill assessment, computer training and adult education. The Pl@za also provides critical classes for both adults and young people who need to finish their high school education and complete the GED.
