At Beyond Housing, we help build community

We began with housing in 1975, but experience and much listening taught us that home is more than housing.  To truly thrive, people also need access to quality childcare, education, health, jobs, financial services, and more. They need help in a crisis and support to achieve dreams.  Successful communities provide those resources. Beyond Housing empowers communities to provide them.

The community’s voice drives our work.

In meetings with community members, a circle of asking, listening, and responding ensures that the community’s voice is heard. From there, we align often significant resources and act to make their vision a reality.
