Housing Collaborative in the News

By now you know, our vision is to provide comprehensive housing services to create a path home for everyone.  How do we do it? We make affordable housing easier to navigate. 


By sharing industry updates, information impacting affordable housing and our own stories, we aim to spread knowledge and awareness of current affordable housing news. Catch up on our latest press pieces, mentions and news coverage as our professional housing navigators work to continue our mission.
