Mission-Based Organizations + Affordable Homes

Nonprofits, faith communities, and other mission-based organizations

Affordable homes are a cornerstone of thriving communities, providing stability and dignity to individuals and families. Nonprofits, faith communities, and other mission-based organizations already play a crucial role in meeting the basic needs of their neighbors, often by providing food, short-term rental assistance, and other services. By using underutilized land owned by mission-based organizations, you can be part of the solution to the affordable housing crisis.
