Shelterforce is the only independent, national magazine reporting on the whole community development world—your world.

For over 40 years, we’ve brought you the on-the-ground work of your fellow community developers who create affordable housing, improve the economy, organize their communities, and work in the many areas that affect low-income communities and communities of color including health, arts and culture, transportation, environmental justice, education, and community safety.

Shelterforce examines and makes sense of the difficult issues facing our communities and challenging our work and beliefs. Issues like race, immigration, education reform, mixed income, and the role of community development in taking on health disparities.

Shelterforce brings you the insights and plans of policymakers, foundations, and advocates with interviews of people like Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation; Rip Rapson, president of the Kresge Foundation; and Phillip Henderson, president of the Surdna Foundation; HUD secretaries Julian Castro, Shaun Donovan, Mel Martinez, Andrew Cuomo, and Henry Cisneros; Congressman Keith Ellison; and innovative leaders in the field like Wayne Meyer of New Jersey Community Capital, and MacArthur “genius” award winners Ai-Jen Poo of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and John Henneberger of the Texas Low Income Housing Information Service.

Shelterforce brings you their stories, and articles about successful community development programs written by journalists, practitioners, and advocates. We connect you with your colleagues and the people who shape our field like no other publication. We lift up their voices and your voice to share, learn, and grow.

Celebrate the women and men of the labor movement. The hard-working people like you have made the lives of so many better. Help us tell their stories and yours as no other publication does. Do it now, and you’ll be saving money too!
