PAHA is a nonprofit organization devoted to bringing homes, through rental and ownership, within reach for more people of less means.


We have fully restructured and reinvented the North Idaho Housing Coalition, and stand on a strong, professional foundation of skill, compassion, and accountability.


We welcome everyone who wants to partner with us to break the grip of poverty.


Together, we all hold the key to a better future for our community.
