The Women's Housing and Economic Development Corporation (WHEDco) works in the South Bronx to restore pride of place, empower residents, and make neighborhoods livable and healthy. They build energy efficient and affordable homes; provide early childhood education and family support; promote youth development; and catalyze business development among local merchants and individual entrepreneurs. WHEDco offers affordable housing to low-income individuals and families, including the formerly homeless, and provides an array of services to the community from two Bronx-locations: Morrisania and Crotona Park East.
