A Holistic Approach to Housing

We do not propose a one-size-fits-all solution.

We partner with local governments, developers and nonprofits in West Michigan to remove barriers to the creation of housing at all price points -- for existing residents and for those looking to move into our communities.

We strongly believe residents should be closely involved in deciding how their

neighborhoods grow. We also believe that every community has the capacity to welcome more neighbors in their own way.
