Mission, Values and Vision
Housing Action Illinois is a statewide coalition formed to protect and expand the availability of quality, affordable housing throughout Illinois. Together we empower communities to thrive through three programs: Organizing, Policy Advocacy, and Training and Technical Assistance.
Our members include housing counseling agencies, homeless service providers, developers of affordable housing and policymakers. These organizations serve low- and moderate-income households, helping to provide a place to call home, thereby strengthening the community at large.
At Housing Action Illinois our supporters, participants and members agree that a stronger Illinois begins at home.
To increase and preserve the supply of decent, affordable, accessible housing in Illinois for low-and moderate-income households.
Housing is a human right. We believe in a society that promotes basic human needs such as decent and safe housing for all of its members. Public policy and government spending should ensure that the basic housing needs of all people are met.
To create an environment where all Illinois residents, including people with the lowest incomes, have a voice in housing policy and community development. We seek to bring together community stakeholders such as residents, businesses, and government to work together to increase the supply and availability of affordable housing across the state.
