For more than 25 years, LIIF has invested in affordable homes to support people’s ability to lift themselves out of poverty. LIIF’s housing investments have ranged from high-design supportive housing developments in Southern California to affordable homeownership opportunities in Rhode Island to equitable co-ops in the Bay Area. Each project has meant a safe, stable place to live and a chance to plan for the future for a low income person or family.
