The housing crisis requires smart solutions families want and can afford.
Right now, more than 1.6 billion people live without adequate housing. We’re in a global housing crisis — and it’s keeping millions of families, especially women and kids from reaching their full potential.
We're on a mission to change this story by bringing scaleable market-based solutions to those who need them most. Families are no longer charitable beneficiaries — they’re customers.
Growing net worth
When low-income families can secure land, their net worth grows with time. In Etzatlán, Mexico, families who purchased land increased their net worth 2x over four years.
Not your traditional charity
We empower vulnerable families to become active participants in a market where they can access and afford quality housing.
TRADITIONAL HOUSING CHARITY
Bringing market-based solutions to those who need them most.
Our financially sustainable model enables low-income families to access land and housing credit at their income levels. And since we fund the work by blending philanthropy and impact investment, your gift goes further to impact more families.

A Case Study: Empowering Women in Mexico
In Etzatlán, Mexico, we helped 941 low-income families become first-time landowners. Women make up 60% of these households, which is 32% higher than the national average. When women own property, they increase their physical and financial security.
