Mission:

Project 8 is revolutionizing subsidized housing through an innovative approach rooted in deep community connection and the essential alliances that drive change. Our mission is to empower low-income families by addressing housing inequities with a comprehensive strategy that integrates mental health awareness, policy dissection, and the identification of harmful, intentional laws that negatively impact communities of color.

We meticulously uncover and address all factors affecting these communities, from the conditions within their homes to the surrounding environment. Through education, advocacy, and direct action, we are committed to creating transformative, lasting change in the housing sector, ensuring safe, affordable, and dignified living conditions for all.

Project 8 is dedicated to empowering subsidized housing tenants by advocating for fair living conditions, providing resources, and fostering a collaborative environment for lasting change. We go beyond these objectives to address systemic issues and hidden agendas that perpetuate inequality, especially targeting communities of color. Our mission involves dismantling laws, rules, and regulations that contribute to trapping people in conditions devoid of opportunities and lead to health issues within families.

Through rigorous research, legal support, data analysis, and community organizing, we aim to not only create healthy homes for low-income subsidized housing communities but also to influence and create laws that ensure justice and protection for those relying on these essential services. Project 8 is committed to ending the exploitation of the less fortunate by those in positions of privilege, ensuring a fair and just environment for all.
