Our History

Homes for America was founded in 1994 by Nancy Rase and Trudy McFall.

Drawing on their deep housing expertise developed across stellar careers in the pubic sector, they set out to create a nonprofit housing organization that was both mission-driven and highly professional.  They leveraged their extensive relationships and sought-after knowledge of housing finance to gradually build a pipeline of quality affordable communities across the mid-Atlantic region.   Through strategic partnerships and with the support of a talented Board of Directors, Homes for America grew from a two person organization with few assets into one of the largest housing organizations in the region with a strong reputation for excellence in housing and resident services.

Over our first 30 years, we have stayed true to the vision of our founders to focus on residents and excellence while continuing to adapt and innovate to maximize our impact.  We have been supported along the way not only by our founders but also by many top-notch staff and board members.
