Being able to afford a safe, quality home enables parents to work, save money and invest more resources in their children’s health and education. LIIF was founded over a quarter century ago to promote affordable housing as a primary way to help families escape poverty. Investing in building and improving affordable homes for low income people remains a cornerstone of LIIF’s poverty alleviation strategy. Through this program LIIF has financed tens of thousands of homes nationwide and saved families billions in household expenses.
Stable housing creates stable families that can provide for their children’s health and education.
