Our Work

Drawing on the real-world experience of our members and our partners at the National Affordable Housing Trust (a joint venture of SAHF and the Low Income Investment Fund), candid peer exchange, and the practitioner experience and policy and programmatic expertise of our staff, we source solutions from the field and put policy into practice helping to understand how good ideas can be implemented on-the-ground.

From resident and community engagement, to the design and operations of buildings and investment in trusted relationship with community partners, we work to provide healthy, sustainable homes and communities where people can connect to the things they need to flourish.
