Challenge

Women and families need housing. Holistic housing is safe, eco-friendly, environmentally harmonious, climate-change resilient, economically sustainable, promotes holistic health and wellness, and increases the quality of life.

Solution

PARKS garden-style apartment buildings are two stories, with a first-floor concrete crawl space and one story above. Parking is located at the ground level and residential units are on both the ground and the upper floors. All the units have front porches and back patios. Common areas include program and office space, a centralized community pavilion and lounge areas, a large outdoor community courtyard at the podium level, solar electrical systems, and community gardens.

Long-Term Impact

Sisterhood Agenda purchased land and continues to identify potential sites throughout the Baltimore metropolitan area. Sisterhood Agenda construction projects include vast ecosystem conservation, permaculture design, and buildings striving to achieve LEED Homes designation or equivalent.
