Excellerate Foundation Building Affordable Community In Fayetteville

Excellerate Foundation

As housing becomes increasingly inaccessible in NWA, the Cobblestone Farm Community will provide an affordable community for nearly 100 families in a diverse, inclusive environment including community gardens and other valuable resources to help them thrive. 

  • Intentionally built: The community will blend low-income and market-rate housing to encourage the development of a mixed-income neighborhood, because more than building affordable housing, the goal is to become an example of an affordable community. 
  • Excellerate together: The Cobblestone Farm Community is a project of the Excellerate Foundation and is a community driven endeavor combining the efforts of organizations like Cobblestone Farms, New Heights Church, Strategic Realty, Potter’s House, Anthology Real Estate, and more.
