Creating Housing Stability

The nonprofit corporation provides services and programs to assist in the development and management of affordable housing communities for low- and moderate-income persons to include seniors, families, children, persons with severe mobility impairments, and individuals with chronic disease and disabilities. Four Community Resource Centers offer programs that provide valuable skills and resources to help families earn higher wages and attain economic independence (like computer training classes and English for Speakers of Other Languages). They also provide programs for children including homework help, reading assistance, and summer enrichment programs. Five Resident Services Centers provide supportive services to low- and moderate-income seniors and persons with disabilities. Services include referrals to community resources, health screenings, fitness programs and social activities with the goal of benefiting the physical and mental health of residents.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Measurement of Success:
Affordable Housing and Supportive Services - Our ongoing program has a goal of serving at least 10% more families/individuals each year with supportive services and a 10% goal to develop/preserve affordable apartment homes per year.
• Preventing Eviction: 95-100% of residents who access crisis/eviction-prevention programming remain housed.
• Job Enhancement: At least 10% of those participating in job enhancement workshops will find new employment.

Each quarter, we provide information to the Board of Directors which tracks our progress in reaching specific strategic plan objectives. The Board monitors our progress to reaching our strategic goals, reviews our financials, and revises policy at monthly meetings. Our Resident Services and Property Management staff work together when residents are in crisis. Early intervention helps us prevent eviction and helps to prevent potential homelessness of low-income residents.

Wesley Housing is governed by a Board of Directors with 14 members. The board is diverse and composed of members of both genders, and various ethnicities, ages, and sexual orientations. Board members represent a variety of occupational fields including individuals who offer expertise in law, banking, real estate, and technology. Monthly meetings of the Executive Committee and quarterly meetings of the full Board enable the Board to actively carry out its responsibilities for financial, program, fundraising, real estate, and organization oversight. The Board ensures the financial soundness and integrity of the organization by overseeing and reviewing financial statements as well as discussing program activities and opportunities each month.

Board members also serve on a number of committees working with staff to strategically guide the organization. There is a dedicated Project Strategy (real estate) committee and a Resource Development committee. Other committees include governance, audit, finance, legal/personnel, and resident services.

Wesley Housing has an experienced staff with diverse backgrounds and capabilities. Our property management division is now a separate company which allows us to pursue more opportunities without as many limitations- Wesley Property Management Company. In addition, Wesley Housing has strong partnerships with other nonprofits, local governments, corporations, foundations, local faith communities, and individuals.

Since 1974, Wesley Housing has served more than 25,000 persons providing permanent, affordable housing and supportive services—including our successful Housing Stability Initiative which is lowering evictions and preventing homelessness. This impactful program instituted in 2011—counseling, crisis intervention, referrals, computer training, job search assistance, and other employment tools—provides our residents with the skills to become self-sufficient.

We are also striving to give stable homes to greater numbers of our at-risk neighbors by developing and preserving more affordable communities. Currently, we have 25 communities and 1,780 units, giving homes to over 3,200 low- and moderate- income individuals.
