Our Mission

To prevent and end homelessness for families with children in the communities we serve through housing, resources and opportunity.

Our Vision

Every family has a safe and affordable place to call home, where parents and children thrive in school, at work and in their community and can achieve their goals and dreams.

Our Values


We are responsive to all we serve: participants, partners, the community and one another. We design our programs with the individual at the core, acknowledging their strengths and working to identify the best path for their family’s success.

Equity, Inclusion & Access

We acknowledge systemic racism, classism and other forms of discrimination as primary causes of the affordable housing crisis and homelessness. We work to right these wrongs as a housing and service provider by engaging respectfully with our program participants, our employees and our community.


We build trust with others, act with transparency and hold ourselves to the highest standards in all we do.


We believe that safe, stable and affordable housing is the foundation of healthy, successful families and thriving communities.
