The BasicsMobility Works
Who are we?
Mobility Works is a national membership organization that works to promote self-determination among low-income families and expand housing choice by supporting moves from under-resourced neighborhoods to communities with safe housing, high-performing schools, green space, and access to employment. We do so by teaming up with housing authorities, finance agencies, nonprofits, and philanthropic organizations to develop regional housing mobility programs.
Our founding members include the national civil rights policy group PRRAC and three leading housing mobility practitioners: the Baltimore Regional Housing Partnership, Housing Choice Partners, and the Inclusive Communities Project.
“The housing mobility program has given me and my children a better
and healthier environment for us to grow.” – Housing Mobility Participant
What do we do?
We offer public agencies and nonprofits range of strategic counsel and technical assistance services.
We assess our clients' policies and programs to identify improvements that will enable housing mobility.
We train staff to find units, counsel families, and engage with landlords.
We create community among people and organizations working to advance housing mobility.
Mobility Works supports the development and expansion of housing mobility programs by building strong communities of practice; providing technical assistance to nonprofits, businesses, and government entities; generating capacity and leadership through education and resource coordination; and advocating for greater choice and opportunity in the Housing Choice Voucher program.
