Project Description

  • Welcome to Nede Resorts and Transitions Community Organization(NRATCO): Shelter and Education Center

    “The mission of NRATCO  is to provide sustainable living environments and educational centers for the homeless, victims of substance abuse, domestic violence, military veterans, and previously incarcerated individuals introduced back into society.” 

    Nede Resorts and Transitions Community Organization  offers an opportunity for an individual or families to change their future by giving them the education, self-discipline, leadership, and responsibility within a New Urbanism Community designed to cater to their needs not offered in their current environment.


    We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty. Mother Teresa  


    There are about 3.5 million people that are homeless in the United States. The number is expected to keep rising, and there are not enough homeless shelters to help house these people. The population of the homeless, victims of substance abuse, domestic violence victims, military veterans, and previously incarcerated individuals has remained the same over the past five years. As a result of this, the demand for the services in this industry is still high. The United States still has a lot of need for the services for these individuals. Therefore, this will lead to further growth of the revenue in the industry.

    Considering this case, the purpose of NRATCO  is to develop a community and safe environment to evaluate the feasibility of the business, focused on the homeless, victims of substance abuse, domestic violence, and previously incarcerated individuals introduced back into society. 

    The NRATCO  Shelter and Education Center:

    The NRATCO is committed to being a steward for the environment and engages in sustainable practices when it comes to maintenance, janitorial work, new construction, and renovations. For the NRATCO community, “going green” accomplishes the following:
