Our Mission

We support practitioners, advocates, and other housing professionals dedicated to keeping homes affordable and communities strong in the long-term. In our peer network, members share their best practices to capitalize on each others’ successes and to avoid common roadblocks. We also offer our own services, products, and resources to our members. Ultimately, our work aims to scale these best practices and successful long-term affordable homeownership programs to the national level.
