What We Do

Front Porch Investments was created in 2021, to serve as an intermediary seeking and supporting solutions to house our community, with a focus on four key areas: 

  • affordable housing development
  • housing justice and racial equity
  • ending homelessness
  • advocacy, policy & organizing

Front Porch Investments’ primary goal is to increase funding, innovation, and strategic partnerships in support of affordable housing across the Greater Omaha metro area. The organization leverages public-private partnerships to collaborate across stakeholders and strengthen the urban housing ecosystem.
