Member Highlight: Vision House
HDC appreciates all the passion, hard work, and dedication our members devote to the affordable housing movement. No single organization could make this impact and secure this progress alone. The collaboration and connection among members is the human energy that works to ensure all people have a safe, healthy, and affordable home. We want to show our appreciation and learn more about our affordable housing community through these member highlights as each member is crucial to achieving the larger vision of this movement. This week our featured member is Vision House. Thank you for all the work that you do!
- What excites your team about the work you are doing?
Our entry team is hosting Community Collaboration forums which is very exciting in seeing the networking develop into organizational relationships that support each other with resources.
- What is a favorite office anecdote?
The most recent client story that inspires me is of a mom who obtained her dream job in a remote location and the fact that staff and donors rallied together to provide her with the means to get there with her small children. It was a community effort to help a formerly homeless woman’s dreams come true.
- What upcoming projects, partnerships, and news are you looking forward to?
I am looking forward to the completion of our 2nd building at Vision House Shoreline which will provide 10 additional transitional/temporary housing units as well as a licensed child care center.
- What have you been most proud of during your time as an HDC member?
The fact that Vision House is a learning and growing organization striving to provide MORE families experiencing homelessness the opportunity to transform their lives and achieve and maintain housing stability.
