While the key issues at play in stabilizing our neighborhoods—such as housing, education, hunger, safety and transportation—are layered with complexities, our great city is full of intelligent people and organizations who are committed to the well-being of our communities and are working to address them every day. 


Partnership is taking on an increasingly important role in how we think about tackling this work. It’s a concept that has always been at the center of our mission, originating from the homebuyer “partner family” model. But it’s now evolving as we expand the scope of our focus into neighborhood health.


With so many talented people and thoughtful organizations at work in the arena, we have an opportunity to connect the dots so that efforts within and across organizations better complement each other. Together, we can address the interconnected issues of community stabilization on enough fronts to make a stronger and more efficient difference for those most in need.
