Mission First Housing Group


About Us

Mission First Housing Group develops and manages affordable, safe and sustainable homes for people in need, with a nonprofit, mission-driven focus on the most vulnerable. The organization ensures its residents have access to resources to help them live independently. Mission First delivers housing that provides long-term benefits to residents and neighborhoods, alike. What began 25 years ago as a joint venture between the City of Philadelphia, HUD and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to provide for the housing needs of adults living with chronic mental illness has become a full-service, non-profit affordable housing organization developing high-quality, green community assets across the Mid-Atlantic region. Over the course of history, Mission First employed a number of key strategies and innovative practices to support its expansion. Mission First currently provides affordable housing and services to over 4,500 people in more than 3,100 units, serving low income populations that include veterans, elderly and the disabled.
