Beyond the Front Door: Families and Management Practices in Home Funders Properties
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 process.

The Fund is working closely with municipalities, the State, developers and financing programs to demonstrate that solutions are possible.

We are creating a ground-breaking national model that shows how one community can bring its most vulnerable families home.

Home Funders is currently funding or committed to funding numerous projects in Massachusetts.
