Membership and Partnering

Non-profit housing providers have historically been deeply rooted in their communities on a grass-roots level whether it’s organizing fundraisers for victims of fire in the community, hosting community activities such as barbecues and garage sales, or organizing Christmas fundraisers for tenants and community members in need. These organizations are dedicated to helping others and sometimes they need help and support themselves. NPHPS aims to bring those organizations together to share information, address their concerns, and help find solutions to the problems those organizations are facing.
