Since 2006, we have constructed affordable rental homes in Greenville and Pickens, South Carolina. We currently have 68 two, three and four bedroom homes for affordable rental between Greenville and Pickens counties. We are near the completion of 6 additional three bedroom homes in Greenville.


Our Mission

Allen Temple Community Economic Development Corporation (ATCEDC) is a 501(c)(3) that
exists for the purpose of bringing affordable housing and economic development to neighborhoods that are underserved by the normal stream of for-profit development and economic activity. Our intention is to act as a partner with governmental agencies and other non-profit organizations to develop and enhance opportunities for community development in Greenville and surrounding areas. In the process of addressing the needs of low-income residents, the entire neighborhood is strengthened, and the prospects for successful market-driven activity are thereby encouraged and enhanced. All levels of development become mutually supportive.


A house is a home when it shelters the body and comforts the soul.
