Milestone memories at spring member meeting
Over 225 HPN members representing 82 organizations – including 55 CEOs – convened at our 58th biannual Member Meeting in Chicago in June 2023. We were particularly excited to engage our members in observance of the Network’s 30th anniversary.
Celebration and reflections on three decades of shared, scaled, and collective commitment to the nonprofit affordable housing sector include:
“Access to stable, affordable housing is an essential foundation. If we want to build a more just, equitable and inclusive world, we have to look at housing. It's just not possible without it.”Debra Schwartz Managing Director Impact Investments, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, HPN funder from 2001-2015
“All of us have to work together to transform what is a broken housing market, in a very real substantial way.”Otis Rolley President, Wells Fargo Foundation
"It’s the value of coming together. Whether you're in San Francisco or LA or Minneapolis, or Davenport, Iowa, the work that we're doing is tied to one another... the real value is in not feeling alone. Because the work that we do is so hard. "Deidre Schmidt Board Chair HPN and and President & CEO, CommonBond Communities
