Who We Are

Our Story

Established in 2021, Front Porch Investments emerged in response to the need for strategic investment and coordinated leadership in affordable housing in the Greater Omaha metro area. Guided by the strategic framework outlined in the Assessment of Housing Affordability, Needs, & Priorities report, we have focused our efforts on supporting effective and sustainable housing solutions.

Building on the exemplary work of past housing initiatives and leveraging the expertise and energy of today's leaders, we aim to create a more robust, holistic, and lasting approach to ensure that everyone in our community has access to safe, affordable housing.
