Phoenix Rising Community Developments is a planned housing community that bears the objective of helping families have housing after experiencing setbacks from trauma, poor mental health, or detrimental life experiences. The founder has an extensive background in land development and home construction and envisioned the union of Tattered Lives Farm and Phoenix Rising Community Developments to assist families out of situations that are not in their control and get them to take a positive step forward. The homes to be built for these deserving families in Maple Hill, NC, will be situated on approximately 100 acres and will be rentable through a below market value. This concept is to be prospected through financial investors, material donations, and volunteers. The vitality of the proof of concept is to showcase the ability to help others while dually benefiting financially from your real estate involvement and investment. This concept is a helping hand to the families rise above their detriments with funding that is the backbone for and of the success for the mission of Tattered Lives Farm, and the first of future Phoenix Rising Community Developments. Please, find more information below about the different phases, materials, and opportunities to be involved. You will also find our contact information below to start your journey to owning real estate with a mission.

How and why?

First, why are we taking on such an undertaking as a non-profit? Second, how is TLF going to accomplish such a task?  
Our why is simple because there is a need for affordable rentals for families who are trying to bounce back after experiencing a traumatizing event in their life that has left them without the security of a roof over their head. The Phoenix Rising Community Developments has the land and the knowledge to help families with affordable rental housing, plus integrate the positivity and benefits of a therapeutic farm. The allocated funds for the construction of the homes will also be dispersed as a contribution to build a friendly farm, allowing TLF to maintain a focus and mission for helping others recover, heal, and rise without the burden or worry of seeking funds through a separate donation process.  
The how is a little more complicated as the founder has made it part of our mission to not use institutional money (banks) because banks lend, and therefore the project becomes a ledger line. When people that believe and contribute to the mission at hand, the well-being of the mission begins to grow and spread by the good virtue of others.   

Phase I

Our first phase, scheduled for late spring 2024, will consist of 3 buildable lots. These three homes will be built using green-friendly materials, like the ones listed below, and custom designed by the students in the architecture department at Coastal Carolina Community College.


The initial cost to construct these three homes is $1,000,000.

Phase II

Our second phase is scheduled for Winter 2024 and will also be constructed with green-friendly materials and designed by the students at Coastal Carolina Community College Architecture Department.


The estimated cost to construct five homes in Phase II is +/- $1,500,000.00. 

Phase III

The third phase of construction is slated for the Spring of 2025, and like the first two phases, green-friendly materials will be used. The third phase will consist of 20 newly built homes, also designed by the students at Coastal Carolina Community College Architecture Department. Just like Phases I and II, the construction costs include the infrastructure, the homes, and components of the farm complex.


Phase III construction expenses are approximately +/- $6 million dollars.

Phase I​
Our first phase will consist of 30 buildable lots, and the cost to construct the infrastructure, homes, and complete farm complex is approximately 9 million dollars and will be raised through individual or corporate investors.

That is no small number, but this is no small endeavor either. When you dream big and let nothing stand in your way, you bring those dreams to reality.

We desire to do it without using any institutional monies. We want to operate solely through the people, for the people! Our motto is "People Helping People." We understand you must believe in our mission to invest, and we will leave you with this thought. You will buy something from a corporate juggernaut, and who benefits? Their investors and the CEOs. Here you get to flip the script and be the one to help and benefit simultaneously!
