The lack of affordable housing in the U.S. is one of the greatest challenges of our time. The problem is deeply complex and the hardship touches every community across the nation. There are thousands of people working every day to mitigate and solve this crisis and they do this because they believe passionately that everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to call home. Nonprofit housing development organizations and governmental entities work tirelessly to improve housing opportunities and they do this without fanfare or respite.
As a Community Development Financial Institution, Community Housing Capital serves the NeighborWorks America network of nearly 250 independent, nonprofit organizations that implement comprehensive approaches to affordable housing and community development. We recently attended a NeighborWorks Training Institute in New Orleans that provided us an opportunity to shine a light on just a few individuals that represent the #everydayheroesofaffordablehousing.
We hope this campaign inspires other housing organizations to shine a light of recognition on the many professionals that work to improve housing conditions in their communities.
