Advocating for Our Community Since 1971

Who We Are

Our goals are to preserve our community as affordable housing for families, with proper maintenance and robust open spaces, where people at the middle of the income spectrum can live and raise a family in peace and safety.

To achieve these goals, we abide by three principles: long-term affordability, high quality of life, and ongoing maintenance.
