Our Philosophy


Providence acquires apartment communities in infill suburban locations that offer middle income residents a renovated, market-rate apartment that they can afford in a safe communities with strong school systems that would otherwise often be inaccessible to this population.

Not only does access to community resources better the lives of our residents, they lower operating costs by lowering turnover and reducing vacancies.
