What we aim to solve

There is a significant need for affordable home ownership in the L-C valley. X out of X renters in the L-C Valley meet our Home ownership Program income requirements and face housing problems such as overcrowding, inadequate or incomplete kitchen or plumbing facilities, and the cost-burden of high rent (spending more than 30% of income on housing). Even one family without safe, stable, affordable housing is one too many. The Lewis-Clark Valley has an affordable housing dilemma with rising rents, flat-lining wages, and low vacancy rates. There is also limited rental housing for large families needing more than two or three bedrooms. This leads to overcrowding in smaller units and extremely low vacancy rates in larger units.
