RDICO is committed to addressing some of the most pressing issues facing the nation today. Disinvested communities, suburban sprawl, lack of housing options, unemployment and rising levels of poverty are some of America’s most urgent socio-economic challenges that our team focuses on daily through the work we do.
RDICO’s holistic and comprehensive approach to social impact real estate development provides structural solutions that are uniquely tailored to communities with the highest need. Our impact-driven real estate model can help to respond to these critical needs.
Triple-Bottom-Line Analysis – Social Impact Investment (SII) is now being measured, and in many instances required, to fulfill Social Returns on Investment (SROI) mandates. RDICO’s social impact real estate development model adheres to these forward-thinking standards which will provide multi-benefits to San Bernardino and the surrounding region not just during the development phase, but for generations into the future of the City and its Community. The social impact created by this 21 Century development program will extend far beyond San Bernardino by providing the entire state and appropriate regions in the country with a sustainable and equitable model for development.
