Opportunity came knocking for Shea Homes of Charlotte, NC, in two ways. One, an opportunity to purchase a distressed neighborhood. Two, a chance to partner with a local non-profit organization, Opportunity House, to clean up the neighborhood while putting local residents back to work.

The first opportunity came in the way of a distressed neighborhood in China Grove, NC formerly named Miller’s Grant. The neighborhood had paved streets and street lamps, but was chained shut and undeveloped when the economy took a turn; it became an eye-sore to the local area. Immediately upon contracting on the neighborhood, the second opportunity arose for Shea Homes to partner with Opportunity House and put a group of unemployed local residents back to work, as landscapers. Their first project was Miller’s Grant, which along with its new look, was given the new name of Miller’s Grove.

Miller’s Grove needed a good clean-up, as weeds and neglect had taken over. Jonathan Steele, local Rowan County resident and Shea Homes’ CFO, immediately thought of partnering with Opportunity House to spruce up the neighborhood while helping local poverty-stricken residents. Jonathan Steele commented, “We have helped Opportunity House in various ways in the past, but we are very excited to be the first customer of Opportunity Houses’ employment initiative, with this landscaping project. Giving a group of local people a second chance and an opportunity to start a new career was a choice we didn’t have to think twice about.  I encourage others in the community to support Opportunity House either through charitable giving or work programs similar to Miller’s Grove.”
