What began as a vision to tackle declines in the skilled trades workforce and affordable housing in Green County exploded into reality with the creation of the Home Construction Cooperative, a collaborative partnership program of Green County Development Association (GCDC).

The Home Construction Cooperative addresses these issues by teaching students in-demand career skills with rehabbing and/or building affordable homes for the community. In the 2023/2024 school year, Monroe High School Launch students worked to remodel a home donated by SSM Health Monroe. Next year’s plans include a new build on a long empty city lot.
