We believe:

Everyone needs housing

We believe that everyone deserves a safe, suitable place to live.

Everyone is welcome

We value racial, gender, sexual, generational, economic, and all other forms of diversity.

Change starts with conversation

We are committed to respectful dialogue and to strengthening our community by listening to our neighbors and sharing accurate information.

Think big, act small

We recognize that housing is a regional problem, but our local actions matter. Our goals are ambitious and will require creativity, compromise, flexibility, and sustained commitment.
