Julie Culver President Partners for Housing Solutions

Affordable Housing Solutions By Sheryl Kornman Affordable housing expert Julie Culver moved from the public sector into the private to establish Partners for Housing Solutions, a new company that creates business opportunities for investors and property owners – and shelter for low-income families, developmentally or physically disabled individuals, seniors and military veterans and their families. Well schooled in the complexities of developing housing in a market-rate world, this work is where her heart is. Culver has two relatives who live in other states who have developmental disabilities and have had to struggle to find stable housing, medical and other services. www.BizTucson.com

What she is doing now will help individuals in that same situation to find a safe place to sleep, with supportive services from behavioral health agencies. Partners for Housing Solutions can help nonprofit organizations, builders and real estate investors, Culver said. It’s a winwin way to address a very real community need. Culver formed a relationship with BFL Construction to provide design-build-construction services for her projects. She knows the construction service component has the potential for problems that can derail a project. “BFL’s experience provides the risk management necessary to assure project success.” continued on page 194 >>> > > > BizTucson 193 Winter Winter 2014 2014
