We believe that affordable housing and supportive programs improve the economic status of residents, transform neighborhoods and stabilize lives. Mission To create stable, vibrant and healthy communities by developing, financing and operating affordable, program-enriched housing for families, seniors and people with special needs who lack the economic resources to access quality, safe housing opportunities.

Justice - The fair and impartial treatment of others. Mercy - The ability to see need and respond with compassion.
