In the News: Navigate Affordable Housing Partners Contributes $3 Million to Support Vulnerable Populations
Posted On: December 2, 2022
We are excited to share that Navigate Affordable Housing Partners was recently featured in the Birmingham Business Journal for our donation of $3 million in grants to organizations supporting vulnerable populations. This donation will support 34 organizations across four states, including 19 organizations based in Alabama. The funds will be used to tackle critical needs in communities, such as affordable housing, rental aid, emergency shelter, food assistance, and clothing provisions.
We are committed to addressing the most pressing needs of families and strengthening communities through our Navigate Gives Back initiative. Through these commitments and collaboration with community partners who share our mission, we will continue to help families put food on the table, cover expenses, and access high-quality, affordable housing where they live, work, and play.
The grants will benefit various organizations, including AIDS Alabama, The Way Station, Alabama Food Bank, Black Belt Community Foundation, Black Belt JOY, CDM Firehouse Shelter, Children’s Aid Society, Collat Jewish Family Services, Community Care Development, Life Services Program, Community Soup Bowl, Daniel’s Pantry, Grace House, Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama, Kikstart Inc., Food Box Program, Mercy Deliverance Ministries, Mt. Pilgrim People Development Center, Salvation Army of Greater Birmingham, Salvation Army of the Shoals, Shelby Emergency Assistance, The Link of Cullman County, and United Way of Central Alabama.
We are proud to support these organizations and the communities they serve, especially given the challenges faced by vulnerable populations during the pandemic. According to the Birmingham Business Journal, a recent survey by Alabama Arise and the Institute for Policy Studies showed almost 80% of respondents in the metro area identified rising housing costs as a problem, while 73% said the same about the overall lack of affordable housing. Our donation is a much-needed step in the right direction towards addressing these issues and helping families and communities in need.
