& Impact

Our Mission

PPL builds the hope, assets, and self-reliance
of individuals and families who have lower incomes
by providing transformative affordable housing
and career readiness services.

Our Statement of Equity

committed to elevating the voices of the communities we serve
that are disproportionately affected by systemic inequities.


Our Vision

PPL envisions safe, resilient, and equitable communities across the Twin Cities.


Why Housing & Jobs

To create long-term stability

The most effective way to promote long-term self-reliance is by stabilizing the economics of a household. When we stabilize a household economically, we help set the stage for long-term success.
