The mission of JPNSI is to increase the range of affordable housing options available to low- and moderate income residents by encouraging resident-controlled development; advocating for shared-equity models of homeownership, cooperative housing, and rental opportunities; and promoting community-building initiatives that advance equitable housing patterns, neighborhood stability, and community-driven land-use planning.

Utilizing the Community Land Trust (CLT) model of affordability and neighborhood revitalization, JPNSI is committed to the development of affordable housing and the promotion of just and equitable community development that centers the needs of residents most vulnerable to housing discrimination, displacement, and neighborhood planning exclusion.
