‘We’ve had partnerships with nonprofits and for-profits. We’ve also done partnerships with public agencies, housing authorities and county and local governments,’ Brown says. “We have a broad range of partnerships that enable us to bring our best set of skills to the table, but also help leverage the other resources and projects that work for all of us.’”
