Beyond Housing exists because home matters. We began with actual houses and housing preservation, focusing on quality and stability to give people a place to start. But there is more to a home than the house – home is about the life that happens in and around the house, as well as the life that fuels and draws out the best of the people within it. Our focus is on improving people’s lives in a holistic manner and in helping entire communities become better places to live.
