Our Mission

Rising Tide Partners collaborates with neighborhood organizations and residents to implement their community vision by employing restorative real estate practices, laying the groundwork for the wealth building and stability of residents who have suffered from systemic injustices in land use decisions.

Our Vision

Communities have sufficient site control to guide the redevelopment process and ensure that existing residents are not displaced.
The community’s vision for real estate becomes a reality.
All residents can build wealth and achieve stability through homeownership.
Families can remain permanently rooted in their communities, and live in well-maintained, safe, and permanent affordable housing.
