Giving Back is part of our commitment to building community. Ratkovich Properties contributes a portion of our profits to efforts that improve living conditions near and far. In addition to supporting non-profit organizations in the communities in which we develop, we support Tapestry Homes, a non-profit organization founded by Cliff and his wife, Rose, that provides safe and secure housing for abandoned, neglected and abused children in the squatter community of Kayamandi, South Africa.
“This business for us is much more than developing successful projects. It is about improving the quality of urban life. We measure our projects’ success not just in terms of dollars and cents, but also in terms of long term value brought to the community. Have we enriched the lives of our residents? Have we enhanced the neighborhood? Have we been a catalyst for reinvestment? These are the questions we need to be able to say ‘yes’ to when finished.”
