Property & Asset Management (PAM)
Voice provides property management, asset management and/or community partner liaison services for residents of Voice-owned properties and developments owned in partnership with others (total of 14 buildings with 214 units of decent, affordable housing).

To create and sustain affordable housing in a socially just, economically and racially diverse Uptown Community, Voice intends not only to support residents to stay and improve in place, but owners who need assistance in maximizing income, managing expenses and building property management capacity for the long haul. As the first major initiative of this program in 2021, VOICE ANNOUNCED the formation of a blue ribbon panel to advise its board on the possible formation of a Diversity Land Trust, and is drawing on expertise in Chicago and lessons nationwide.
