WE ARE INNOVATION LEADERS AND ADVOCATES

We advocate for innovative ideas to solve our region’s housing challenges and we inspire a younger generation with our Gen2Gen programs and outreach events. We lead by example, focusing on quality and integrity in the construction of our buildings and in our relationships with the communities in which we work. We strive to make our partners and donors, residents and colleagues proud of their affiliation with us every day.

WE ARE COALITION BUILDERS

We harness expertise and resources from local, state, regional, and national agencies, financial institutions, the real estate industry, and affordable housing leaders.  Our strength is in our relationships and our ability to build partnerships.  We know that successful developments are built when parties are unified around a shared vision and craft housing solutions that meet community need.
