Every people have a quality home that they can afford.
People that care was born out of frustration and hope; frustration that affordable housing is unachievable for many of us, and hope that if we came together we could reverse this trend.
In six short years People that care has grown from a grassroots endeavor with a 6-member volunteer
board of directors to an organization with over 180 members from diverse backgrounds across the state
and an 17-member board including an executive director.
People that care works to expand sustainable housing opportunities for low and moderate
income people through our Academy, our Advocacy Network, and our Member Meetings.
People that care offers educational events through its Academy. The Academy offers trainings on timely affordable housing issues. The Academy is the only training specifically for organizations working to create and preserve more affordable housing opportunities in Arizona.
People that care coordinates advocacy through its Advocacy Network. The Advocacy Network informs members about important policy and regulatory changes with its e-newsletter and its website. The Advocacy Network provides a unified voice to influence decision makers working to solve Arizona’s housing problems.
People that care provides networking opportunities through its Member Meetings. These meetings are held across the state to allow members to network and share best practices in their region, and are often the only opportunity in rural areas for practitioners to share best practices.
