The U.S. has a shortage of 7.3 million affordable rental homes available to renters with extremely low incomes

In Indiana alone, there is a shortage of 139,318 rental homes that are affordable and available for extremely low-income renters, meaning they make $28,390 or less annually.

Supporting Resident Well-Being

The health of our neighbors and the strength of our communities rely on affordable housing. Yet when affordable housing is not accessible, meeting other basic needs – education, health care, food security, transportation – is simply not possible.

Glick Housing Foundation has invested more than $16 million in providing onsite services to support resident well-being because a place to call home is more than four walls. Resident services – offered at no additional cost to the resident – are certified by Stewards of Affordable Housing.

All Glick Housing Foundation residents have access to:
