The UFCF, an after school enrichment program that has sent 115 students to college on scholarships. After 7 years of mentoring over 400 students in the Pine Hills/Orlando area and serving over 850,000 family with its bi-weekly food distribution, the UFCF now has a permanent home. The office was made possible in part by a $10,000 grant from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Community Crime Prevention grant awareness.
New Senior Affordable Housing Community in Orange County’s Pine Hills Neighborhood Breaks Ground
April 2021, Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings and District 6 Commissioner Victoria P. Siplin recently joined local leaders and residents for the groundbreaking of a soon-to-be senior affordable housing community located in Pine Hills.
Hawthorne Park, developed by Wendover Housing Partners, will be a 120-unit development and will replace a portion of an underutilized shopping center and become the new anchor for revitalization in Pine Hills. Hawthorne Park is an example of successfully utilizing public-private partnerships to address the need for more affordable housing.
November 2020., Orange County Government gave $3.2 million in Federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds to the project as part of the recommendations for Mayor Demings’ Housing for All Task Force.
This event marked the completion of 96 move-in ready units as part of the second phase of the affordable housing development, Emerald Villas.
The community is located at 3204 El Primo Way in Orlando.
