Every day in our city, low-income, hardworking families struggle to find affordable places to live.  Rapidly rising rents force these families to live in unsafe, unhealthy and crowded conditions.  Families often have to move once or twice a year in search of rents that stay within their reach.

Our mission of working with the community to build simple, healthy, affordable homes has resulted in over 300 local families permanently escaping poverty housing.
