History

Over the years, our affiliate organization has expanded to provide affordable housing to more New Jersey residents and promote homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty. Each merger has allowed us to streamline operations and consolidate overhead expenses by pooling resources, boards, and expertise.
