About Us


Mission, Vision, and Values

The mission of the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance is to lead the movement to ensure that all our residents thrive in safe, healthy, affordable homes. We do this through advocacy, education, and organizing.

Our vision is that all Washington residents have the opportunity to live in safe, healthy, affordable homes in thriving communities.

The following values guide our work:

The Housing Alliance provides leadership to bring people and organizations together to have the greatest impact on policy. We also nurture and develop leaders across the state who can engage their local communities.

A just society provides everyone the opportunity to live in a safe, healthy, affordable home. As people and organizations who care about affordable housing and ending homelessness, we are part of a broader struggle for social justice.

A home is the foundation that each person and family needs to succeed, but a roof overhead is just the first step. Ultimately, our vision is for everyone in Washington to have a home in a thriving community — one that is safe, healthy, affordable, and inclusive.
