NEW PORT RICHEY — The National Community Development Association has recognized Pasco County Community Development as a winner of the 2022 Audrey Nelson Community Development Achievement Award for for the county’s collaboration on the Rosalie Rendu Residences.

The new residences were purchased by St. Vincent de Paul CARES. They are designed to provide a safe, clean and permanent place for the homeless and those living with a disability. The units, which were renovated from a former multi-family building, opened in August.

The development includes both efficiencies and two-bedroom units for shared housing.

“We’re honored to receive this award and grateful for the partnership with St. Vincent de Paul CARES on this project,” said County Commissioner Christina Fitzpatrick in a news release. “Rosalie Rendu Residences will have a major impact on the lives of those who need a safe and reliable place to live.”

The project was funded through Community Development Block Grant and COVID relief funds allocated by the Pasco County Commission, along with state funding and private donors.

This is the second year that the county has won the award for collaborating with the community on a project. Last year Pasco was recognized for the Vincent House project.
