Our mission is to help individuals and families remain in or return to stable housing and to assist with special housing projects or renovations in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. In addition, HIF supports efforts to identify long-term solutions to the lack of affordable housing in our community. The Housing Industry Foundation is a key partner in the community, working with emergency service agencies that evaluate and qualify recipients for emergency housing grants. Through these strategic partnerships, HIF keeps operational and administrative costs low and its funding focused on serving the community. The organization’s unique framework has remained the same since its inception; the Board of Directors provides all operational funding so that 100% of fundraising contributions go directly to support two programs; our emergency housing fund and renovation projects. The Board further extends the organization’s community reach by gaining the support of industry leaders who can leverage their resources, funding and skills to complete renovation projects providing knowledge and expertise in many areas; electrical work, construction, painting, and flooring just to name a few.
