about us

Housing Now is a grassroots effort to expand the supply of affordable housing. Our focus is on expanding publicly financed housing. We believe that our cities and our neighborhoods can only become welcoming communities if we expand the supply of housing and especially the supply of affordable housing.  We’re a volunteer powered group, find below pictures of some of the many people who have shown up for affordable housing!
