About Villa del Sol Housing Development
The revitalization project began eight years ago with a boarded-up, vacant home, in the midst of a housing crisis that shook the Inland Empire at its core. NPHS identified the property and saw an opportunity to revitalize the neighborhood of hard-working families by creating three affordable factory-built homes on the same parcel that will be energy efficient with installed solar panels.
