We design, manage and evaluate programs nationally and locally with a focus on impact across three levels: systems, communities and people.

Our programs are grounded in the needs of the communities we serve, and are designed to directly address our organization-wide goals to increase housing supply, advance racial equity and build resilience and upward mobility. Whenever possible, we elevate the voices and lived experiences of residents in communities to inform how we create, manage and scale programs and partnerships.

Our Approach
We Design & Measure Programs for Impact

People First

We build our programs to elevate the voices and lived experiences of the residents we serve and our partners on the ground. Everything we do is designed to address the greatest needs of people and communities first.

Impact Across Three Levels

Any program we put our name behind aligns with our mission and organization-wide goals. We focus on programs that make an impact on systems, communities and people while adding value to the field.

Breadth of Capabilities

We put the right resources and teams in place, leveraging the breadth of our integrated capabilities, from advisory services and policy, to our products for investors and financing for developers, and choose skilled partners to collaborate with. 

Continuous Improvement

Defining success isn’t an afterthought. Our teams work together from the beginning to put key metrics in place and capture lessons learned, and then continuously evaluate progress. Using what we learn, we improve and scale more programs and design new ones.
