Who we are

The Valley Housing Fund (VHF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2010 by Gunnison Valley residents in response to a growing concern about home affordability.

VHF envisions meeting the needs of our community through diverse community housing projects at both ends of the valley that combine the skills and resources of the private sector, governments, nonprofits and community members.

As a leader and advocate for affordable and accessible housing opportunities, we champion the completion of housing initiatives in the Gunnison Valley through direct financial support and stakeholder facilitation. 

In addition to contributing to existing housing initiatives, we provide strategic leadership and outreach to call attention to our valley’s affordable housing challenges and enable positive change in local policy, programs, and developments.

Our Strategic Goals are to:

In Our Work We Value:

VHF recognizes that no single entity or solution will solve the housing crisis, and the best approach is through partnership and cooperation.

Our organization believes communication plays a critical role in advocating for low and middle income residents and VHF strives to engage all segments of the community in solutions.

We acknowledge the environmental effects of development and make decisions about materials and construction to minimize impacts.
