HEAL

Housing Equity, Advocacy, and Leadership

The 6-week HEAL program provides participants with the groundwork to become affordable housing advocates, educators, leaders, and innovators in their communities and beyond. Participants will develop leadership skills and a deep understanding of the history of housing advocacy, cutting-edge solutions, and how to get involved locally.
