Donate to Support Affordable
Housing in East Harlem!

Our mission has always been to provide stability and access to opportunity for NYC communities by creating and preserving affordable housing and building strong networks of community allies.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a magnifying glass to the struggles millions of Americans have obtaining quality housing they can afford. Now, just as the critical mass for social justice is gaining momentum, the NYC Housing budget is getting decimated. $1 BILLION in proposed housing cuts to the HPD housing plan will only deepen financial and housing insecurity for low-income communities— where COVID-19 has already had a disproportionate impact on Black and Latino households. HPD Capital budget cuts endanger 20K units of affordable housing – 3K units supportive (homeless) housing. 

AND will continue our mission to building affordable and supportive housing for New Yorkers and are determined to find a way regardless of municipal budget cuts. Your donation will help us house more New Yorkers who need it most. We MUST invest in our communities. With your help we can continue building safe and affordable housing right now.

During this campaign we will share with you our recent successes, and introduce upcoming projects that will expand affordable housing opportunities for residents of Northern Manhattan. We’ll honor individuals and community organizations whose work and dedication have made our neighborhoods stronger and more resilient during these uncertain times.

Building and preserving affordable housing in New York City is no small task, and we could not do it without our passionate network of advocates and allies. As we find new strength and resilience during this pandemic, we recognize that this burden is on all of us to create safe and affordable housing for all.

We thank you for your support!
