Since 1973, UHAB has been helping New Yorkers with limited means become part of their own housing solutions.
- Homesteaders using their sweat equity to rehab a vacant distressed building
- Residents of a tax-foreclosed property taking over its management, then owning it as an affordable cooperative
- Neighborhood tenant associations uniting to push their unresponsive landlords to improve their living conditions
These are all examples of the success stories that UHAB has trained and guided residents to achieve for themselves.
