• Learn about the most effective way to help the homeless.
Housing Partnership Network (HPN) is a business collaborative of 100 of the nation’s affordable housing and community development nonprofits. Since its inception, HPN and its entrepreneurial nonprofit member organizations have been developing a new way of creating social change, combining mission with market-based solutions to create housing solutions suited to addressing the challenges millennials face.
This month, HPN convened in San Francisco as a lead-up to the launch of our latest venture, the Build Opportunity Fund. This new impact investingvehicle is designed to provide organizational-level, as opposed to project-based, capital to our members, allowing them to deploy solutions at scale.
Another opportunity is to offer greater support for organizations like MidPen Housing, one of the nation’s leading nonprofit developers, and the owners and managers of high-quality affordable housing. MidPen has developed or rehabbed more than 8,000 affordable homes in San Francisco, with an additional 2,572 affordable homes currently in construction, entitlement, or pre-development.
