About Us

Over 45 years of community through cooperation.

We believe housing works best when residents are in charge. Our work is to support tenants and cooperative homeowners at every stage of resident controlled affordable housing.

Fighting for democratic community control

UHAB was founded during the self-help housing movement, and we’ve witnessed the power of self-reliance in organized residents. We believe housing works best when residents are given the tools and resources to be in control.

UHAB helps build power in tenant and co-op communities so they can continue to advance racial, social, economic, and environmental justice through cooperation.
