Tempe’s dedicated affordable housing investments yield positive results

By Caroline Yu | YourValley

Tempe’s Coalition for Affordable Housing is seeing rapid growth and success as it works to put a roof over the heads of local residents.

On March 24, Tempe City Council held its first joint meeting with the Tempe Coalition for Affordable Housing, which was created in 2018 by the city’s public housing authority to identify, procure and manage living arrangements for individuals experiencing homelessness in Tempe.

Currently, the coalition manages almost $10 million in assets, according to the city’s website. The living units have been mostly purchased using federal grant funding while others were donated by the city.
At the meeting, the council met with members of the nonprofit to discuss the group’s duties and what has been accomplished coming up on the five-year mark of its inception.

Irma Hollamby Cain, president of the coalition’s board of directors, led a presentation on the group’s work, focusing on overall performance and financial effects.
