Testimonials

"We could not have succeeded without the tireless help of NWCDC and they continue to be a key resource in our efforts to succeed as a cooperatively owned and operated community. We are now an example of stable, quality, low income housing. Cooperative ownership is a viable economic answer to the questions of uncertainty faced in rural and low income areas."

- Elias Mora, Board of Directors, Cascade Village Co-op
