Mission

It is our vision that a home will be within reach for all Pennsylvanians.

OUR MISSION

The Housing Alliance is a statewide coalition working to provide leadership and a common voice for policies, practices, and resources to ensure that all Pennsylvanians, especially those with low incomes, have access to safe, decent and affordable homes. 

We promote common-sense solutions to balance Pennsylvania’s housing market and increase the supply of safe, decent homes for low-income people.

OUR VALUES

  • Thriving communities must provide families and individuals with a variety of choices in places to live. 
  • Parents should be able to spend time with their children and community rather than commuting to and from work. 
  • Businesses that have invested in our communities deserve support in creating housing policies that help them find and keep qualified workers. 
  • Our government leaders have an obligation to plan ahead and look at the big picture, with policies that allow the housing market to meet the needs of our economy. 
  • Building strong communities depends on the ability of people from different backgrounds and points of view to work together.
