Strategy

Why are so many people still struggling to pay for housing?

That question inspires our commitment to continue developing innovative approaches to growing and preserving the availability of affordable rental housing.

Boldly Committed to Affordable Housing

Between the shortage of subsidized housing and the ongoing loss of low-cost rentals through market forces, low-income households have increasingly fewer housing options. Often forced to leave their neighborhoods in search of affordable housing, communities are fractured and displaced, furthering destabilizing the lives of these vulnerable families.

BB Housing is responding by enacting proven strategies to grow and safeguard the availability of affordable housing, engaging and revitalizing the communities we work in.
