The Housing Alliance of Valley Employees South Texas Region is here to serve the needs of low income families and do our best to increase the availability of satisfactory, safe, and affordable housing, ensure equal opportunity in housing, promote self-sufficiency and asset development and to improve community quality of life and economic viability. HAVE-STR assists in providing housing agencies with adequate training and resources, developing qualified staff, providing effective and accountable operations of public housing authorities.
The mission of The Housing Alliance of South Texas is to ensure that all Texans, especially those with low incomes, have access to safe, decent and affordable homes.
Formed in 1985, the Housing Alliance is a growing and influential membership organization, with over 500 organizational and individual affiliates statewide. Most of our members are housing consumers, advocates, producers, providers or policy makers, or local government officials.
These members are the foundation of our organization. Members help set the agenda, elect our leadership, and shape action, all the while representing the needs of their communities.
Through the Housing Alliance, the individual views of our members are forged into a single, effective, persistent voice for the affordable housing needs and interests of rural, urban and suburban communities across the Rio Grande Valley and all of South Texas.
