Affordable housing is out of reach for too many Americans

Glick Housing Foundation is changing that through preservation.

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.

A Key Part of the Solution: Preservation
We ensure that existing affordable housing remains available and accessible to those who need it through acquisition, rehabilitation, and commitment to long-term ownership.

Preservation closes the gap

Preservation closes the gap

  • Acquisition

    We acquire existing affordable housing, including communities that are at risk of losing affordability due to the expiration of subsidies and restrictions. Learn more about our approach to acquisitions.

  • Rehabilitation

    We reinvest in the rehabilitation of communities to ensure they are well-maintained for years to come, energy efficient, and a quality place to call home.

  • Commitment to long-term ownership

    Affordable housing is in Glick’s DNA. We’re in the business of building community and we know that takes time and commitment. As long-term owners, we aim to provide stability for residents and the broader community.

And, we support 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. Our resident services – offered at no additional cost to the resident – are certified by Stewards of Affordable Housing.

Resident Spotlight

Resident Spotlight

I’ve lived here 16 years, I love it.

Everybody is friendly and it’s a nice place to live. I’d do anything for my neighbors because I love them. Deborah [the onsite resident service coordinator] does a whole lot for us. She goes out of her way. You can give her any paper, like something from social security, and she’ll know exactly what to do with it.

The Success Center

In 2019, the Success Center opened at Carriage House East to foster a sense of community and help families achieve their goals. Carriage House East is Glick Housing Foundation’s largest community with more than 600 apartment homes. In addition to serving residents, the Success Center is also available to the broader community on the far eastside of Indianapolis. The 10,000-square-foot Success Center includes several multi-purpose spaces for community events, a teaching kitchen for cooking classes, an outdoor gathering space, and a welcoming entry with computers to serve as a social hub for residents and neighbors.
