About Urban Housing Solutions

Having a Place to Call Home Changes Everything.

As Nashville’s largest non-profit provider of affordable housing, Urban Housing Solutions develops creative alternatives for individuals and families seeking attractive, accessible communities. Practicing sustainable construction, we rehabilitate aging structures and build new ones to offer decent, affordable options for Nashvillians and surrounding Middle Tennessee residents.

In partnership with other nonprofits and government organizations, we go beyond housing assistance to match clients with transportation providers, social service agencies, and community health care access. It’s through this service continuum that our team seeks to impact families and enhance Nashville neighborhoods in compassionate, forward-thinking ways.

Our Mission

To provide homeless, low-income, and working Nashvillians with a supportive place to call home — because having a place to call home changes everything.

Our Vision

Urban Housing Solutions is a local nonprofit working to solve Nashville’s affordability crisis. We know that having safe, stable and budget-friendly housing in Nashville will create a stronger city for future generations—so we’ve already developed nearly 1,300 housing units. Our goal is to provide the city with 1,000 more apartments over the next five years, preserving the ability for Nashville men and women to care for their families and live where they work.

Partner With Us

As UHS casts a vision for creating an additional 1,000 safe, affordable apartments near the heart of Nashville, we invite you to help us meet that goal. Partner with us today:

  • Donate. Good news: our current apartments are self-sustaining, so 100% of your donation is used for new housing and support programs.
  • Get involved. Solving the affordable housing crisis takes a team. No single agency, person or government can do it alone. Join in the effort!
  • Spread love. Follow us on social media; then share our mission with your friends, neighbors and coworkers. When you tell other people and organizations about UHS, you’re making a big difference.
