Who We Are




Our Goals

  • Create new affordable housing one community at a time by applying for public and private funding to build and maintain eco-friendly housing that is thoughtfully integrated with the community, thereby preserving its character.
  • Facilitate connections and linkages among others by initiating community-housing partnerships (CHP's) between the nonprofit, public and business sectors, encouraging them to join forces as a unified voice and work as a team to plan and implement creative 'out-of-the-box' solutions.
  • Better leverage existing housing stock through innovative collaborative programs (e.g., Renovate-to-Rent initiative that provides homeowners living in substandard housing with donated materials and labor to renovate their homes in exchange for renting a room to a pre-screened qualified low income residents in need of affordable transitional housing).
  • Educate and inform of the need for affordable housing by designing and maintaining a website that provides local residents, policy makers and the media with a comprehensive resource library on issues such as the importance of mixed-income eco-friendly housing to a community's economic and environmental health and example model programs and initiatives for preserving and creating affordable housing.
  • Achieve a self-sustaining funding stream by embracing creative nontraditional fundraising strategies such as for-profit ventures and online fundraising, in addition to the traditional funding sources such as private and public grants, corporate sponsorships, planned giving, and special community events.
