A research report by Keri-Nicole Dillman and Andrea Shapiro, September 2014
From January to August 2014, the research team studied eight, purposefully-selected housing developments financed in part by Home Funders. This descriptive study provides a wealth of point-in-time information about the characteristics of the families and their housing, and identifies promising practices for housing stability and family well-being. The full report can be viewed here.
This partnership of private investors
believes that all other foundation investments aimed at addressing
the social, educational and economic needs of extremely low
income (ELI) families and children are at risk when the basic
need for adequate housing is not fully met.
Home Funders supports innovative rental projects that house
extremely low-income families in a mixed-income housing environment.
We are tapping into the creativity of the local affordable
housing community to bring forward viable projects. We are
tapping the power and scale of the investors’ endowments
to drive significant change in the affordable housing development
The Fund is working closely with municipalities, the State,
developers and financing programs to demonstrate that solutions
We are creating a ground-breaking national model that shows
how one community can bring its most vulnerable families
