The SJHP is licensed as a state certified residential contractor, to operate in any county in Florida.  Beginning in 1996, the SJHP has served low-income families and elderly throughout St. Johns County Florida.  In 2010, the SJHP expanded and assumed management of the Clay County WAP Program, providing weatherization repairs to low income families and elderly throughout Clay County Florida to date 2500 homes have received the emergency repair services in St. Johns County, Florida alone.  To date 805 homeowners have received these counseling services and over 305 mortgages have been successfully modified, keeping the families in their own homes and preventing the foreclosure process from occurring.

The SJHP has been operating in North Florida for 15 years, running a variety of housing programs. The SJHP has over 20 years’ experience in single family rehab, rentals and construction. We have developed a high level of expertise in both energy efficiency and green building features that are cost effective. The SJHP currently owns over 160 doors; including single family, duplexes, triplexes and 35+ unit USDA and senior apartments. For the last ten years SJHP has rehabbed at least 200 homes each year and averaged $1 million annually.

The SJHP has provided credit counseling services since 2004 in St. Johns County and now have expanded to Clay, Duval, Putnam and Flagler counties.  Our home repair programs focus on health, safety and energy conservation repairs. During 2010, we were asked to absorb a weatherization program in Clay County, expanding its production from 10- 40 homes per month. We want to expand our presence in Clay County, becoming more involved in other rehab and REO projects, in addition to starting to provide credit counseling and first-time homebuyer workshops. We have had additional requests from people in nearby rural communities of Putnam and Flagler County for similar support. We are also looking at working in the more urban area of Duval County, where appropriate.

Beginning in 2004, the SJHP developed a 36-unit single family subdivision, The Hancock Place. The SJHP oversaw the infrastructure installation of water, sewer and roads, in addition to a four phase construction schedule. Financing came from the Florida Housing Finance Corporation PLP, HAP and HOP programs, in addition to a $1million line of credit from BB&T for vertical construction. The SJHP received numerous awards for energy efficiency and green building certifications, in addition to recently completing the first phase of a 2-year renewable energy research project. Funded through the Governor’s Energy Office, 20 of the Hancock Place homes were retrofitted with a variety of renewable or high efficiency features, along with data loggers that will measure daily electrical consumption for the next two years.

The SJHP brings a level of experience in both green construction and coordinated successful credit counseling to every community we work in. All rehab projects, whether for homeowners or rental, are all evaluated for lower energy bills and improved indoor air quality performance measures.

Any neighborhood, in which the SJHP is able to purchase and rehab foreclosed property will be improved by removing blighted or abandoned homes.

The SJHP has already shared many of our successes in how to achieve energy efficiency or green certifications in a cost-effective manner. The more we are able to showcase this process, the more success we have in convincing local builders and housing staff, that this is possible and should be done, in every instance.
