WINDSOR, N.C., July 02, 2024 – With assistance from SECU Foundation, Bertie County opened its doors July 1 to welcome tenants to a new 24-unit housing complex for public school and local government employees. The Foundation provided Partners for Bertie County Public Schools with interest-free construction financing and 15-year interest-free permanent financing of $3.1 million.

The initiative is one of six undertaken by SECU Foundation since 2006 in response to the education communities’ workforce needs in rural and underserved areas of North Carolina. Previous housing projects in Hertford, Dare, Hoke, and Buncombe counties received similar financing assistance from SECU Foundation.

“We are delighted to announce the Grand Opening of Dream Pointe Apartments, our ‘Teacher Housing Apartment Complex’ supported and financed by SECU Foundation,” said Partners for Bertie County Public Schools Board Chair Ron Wesson. “Dream Pointe allows us to offer new teachers and teachers who work in our community but don’t live here an exciting opportunity to become full members of the community where they are employed. The support and encouragement from SECU Foundation has far exceeded our expectations, and we look forward to a long and mutually supportive relationship.”

“We are so pleased to help the Partners for Bertie County Public Schools take major steps forward in addressing their longtime priority of attracting and retaining teachers,” said SECU Foundation Director of Grants Administration Scott Southern. “Dream Pointe Apartments will not only meet an immediate housing need, but it will also support the continued growth and development of Bertie County.”
