About DreamKey Partners

Mission: Transforming lives, communities and what is possible through affordable housing.

Vision: Thriving communities where everyone has a chance to succeed.

At DreamKey Partners (formerly Charlotte-Mecklenburg Housing Partnership), we approach the affordable housing crisis holistically—that is, we don’t just build affordable housing and call it a day. We remain invested throughout the entire journey, and our touchpoints are deep. From the outset, we learn before we act. We dig into the hearts of the neighborhoods—we talk and partner with residents, government and community leaders, builders/contractors, lenders, and other nonprofit organizations and foundations. We are equipped to develop affordable housing solutions that make sustainable sense for people and neighborhoods.

We value fairness and celebrate differences, for everyone. Race, equity, diversity and inclusion are central to our core values and commitment to representing the families and communities we serve. We recognize the power of our people and appreciate our differences in thought, style, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical ability, culture, ethnicity and experience. It is the foundation for everything we do.
