Below, you'll find links to some of the organizations and agencies that make our work possible, as well as links to some resources for people seeking affordable, accessible, integrated housing.
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
HUD’s mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. HUD is working to strengthen the housing market to bolster the economy and protect consumers; meet the need for quality affordable rental homes; utilize housing as a platform for improving quality of life; build inclusive and sustainable communities free from discrimination; and transform the way HUD does business.
Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA)
The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency was created by the General Assembly in 1972 to provide affordable housing for older adults, persons and families of modest means, and persons with disabilities. To date, the Agency has financed more than 130,000 houses and 54,000 apartment units while assisting 40,000 homeowners threatened with foreclosure.
