An important sea-change is underway in the housing and community development field. Opportunity Starts at Home, a new campaign launched by the National Low Income Housing Coalition, has drawn our nation's leading civil rights, education, economic mobility, housing, homelessness and health nonprofits into a multi-sector effort to support the expansion of rental housing for lowest income Americans. Mike Koprowski, National Director, Opportunity Starts at Home and Eric Rodriguez, Vice President, Policy, at UnidosUS, the nation's largest Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization, tell the story of this Campaign and the committed organizations that are moving it forward. Funders for Housing & Opportunity, a collaborative including the Ford Foundation, Melville Charitable Trust and the Kresge Foundation share the vision and are all-in supporters of this new and promising model.
