Your Community Partner
The Housing Trust is an independent community development 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation based in Santa Fe, serving not only the City of Santa Fe, but other northern New Mexico counties as well. Since our founding in 1992, we have been instrumental in establishing many affordable housing efforts in the Santa Fe area, such as the first homebuyer training and counseling program, and the Santa Fe Affordable Housing Round Table and Trust Fund. Our current activities are the result of years of innovation and program development in response to real community housing needs.
In 1992 the City of Santa Fe, Enterprise Community Partners, and existing housing nonprofit groups realized the need for an umbrella housing organization that could directly assist potential homeowners and work to obtain land, project financing, and other resources needed to accelerate affordable housing efforts in Santa Fe. The fledgling Santa Fe Community Housing Trust was tapped for these roles and the Executive Director, Sharron Welsh, was hired as the organization’s first employee.
Since our founding, the Housing Trust has grown to a multi-million dollar operation with 12 employees. Our organization has built and sold nearly 700 affordable homes and 120 affordable rental apartments. We have provided hands-on training and individual counseling for nearly 5,000 potential homeowners and provide home purchase loans to 1,500 lower-income families. We have also provided assistance for more than 400 renters through special programs for homeless and disabled clients.
