Impact Seven is pleased to present its organizational website. It is intended to be a resource for individuals, businesses, and communities, to inform about the products and services we can offer in the areas of housing development, property management, business development, and overall community development.
A community development corporation (CDC), Impact Seven was founded in 1970 by people of northwestern Wisconsin concerned with a waning economy, the out-migration of its youth and the rate of poverty among area residents. Our mission – to comprehensively impact the population of Wisconsin, with an emphasis on the rural areas of the state – remains the same, but we have come a long way since we opened up shop in Cameron, Wisconsin, over four decades ago.
Impact Seven is headquartered in Almena, Wisconsin with a branch office in Milwaukee. We are a certified Community Development Financial Institution, manage several Small Business Administration (SBA) and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) loan programs, provide venture capital, and are part-owner of a community development bank, started in conjunction with a partner CDC. We are one of the largest non-profit developers of affordable housing in Wisconsin and manage 1,019 units, most of which we own. As a consultant and developer, we have helped numerous communities make significant strides towards revitalizing distressed housing, sagging economies, and dwindling populations.
Impact Seven has a number of programs, loan pools, properties, resources and ideas in which you may be interested. I hope you will take some time to explore our site. Thank you for your interest and support, and I invite your comments and suggestions. Please contact me today to discuss how we might be able to make a positive impact on you, your business, or your community.
