The Housing Fellowship was incorporated as a non-profit in 1990. A community based housing organization, The Housing Fellowship began as a response by representatives from area religious congregations to the severe shortage of affordable homes in our community. The mission of The Housing Fellowship is to provide quality homes that are affordable to people with limited incomes.
The Housing Fellowship has met the rigorous criteria established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is certified as a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO). The CHDO certification is monitored annually by the Planning and Community Development Department of Iowa City and by the Iowa Department of Economic Development. Some criteria for the CHDO certification are that one third of the Board of Trustees must represent the low-income community or reside in a HUD designated low income neighborhood and that the non-profit must demonstrate the capacity to develop affordable housing. The Housing Fellowship is one of the premier CHDO’s in the state of Iowa.
