Jacksonville, FL (August 28, 2013) — Chase has awarded a $20,000 grant to Ability Housing of
Northeast Florida. The grant is for the nonprofit’s Villages Program which develops and operates quality multifamily
rental properties for the homeless, those at risk of homelessness, and adults with a disability. Ability
Housing has developed Mayfair Village Apartments, Renaissance Village Apartments and Oakland Terrace
Apartments for a total of 195 units; plus the CASA Program which provides an additional 60 units of housing.
“There remains a tremendous need in Northeast Florida for affordable rental housing,” said Shannon
Nazworth, Executive Director of Ability Housing. “We are extremely grateful to Chase for their
assistance. This will help us to continue to identify, purchase and renovate communities and help families in
crisis escape homelessness.”
Last year, Chase gave more than $6 million to nonprofit organizations around Florida that support affordable
housing, workforce development and accessible education.
