About Sheldon Oak
The mission of this agency is to develop, manage, and produce affordable housing for at-risk populations. The agency is also committed to the sustainability of its projects through its network of community centers, and the development of commercial real estate necessary for community economic growth.
Sheldon Oak Central is one of the oldest operating community development corporations in Hartford
It was founded by a group of churches in 1968 to create Sheldon Oak Cooperative, an affordable housing development on the edge of the city’s downtown.
Since then, Sheldon Oak Central has developed and owns or shares ownership of 11 properties that are home to almost 700 Hartford families and elderly. Our development portfolio includes multifamily rental, single family homeownership and senior and supportive housing.
Sheldon Oak's properties are managed by The Schochet Companies/ Federal Management Company. Their office is shared with Sheldon Oak staff at:
