The Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania is a statewide coalition dedicated to increasing access to safe, decent, and affordable homes. We organize, unify, and amplify the voices of people and organizations that recognize that every Pennsylvanian needs access to a safe, decent, and affordable home. We advocate for increased funding and improved state and federal public policy, promote solutions to take affordable housing strategies to greater scale, and convene our network to learn from each other and about new ways to address common challenges. Our network includes organizations on the front lines providing housing and supportive services to lower income families as well as people who have experienced housing instability and homelessness.
This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate with a passion for increasing access to affordable housing for lower wage households.
