PathStone is a not-for-profit community development and human service organization providing services to low-income families and economically depressed communities throughout New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia, Vermont and Puerto Rico. Since 1969, PathStone has been dedicated to preserving affordable housing for lower-income households. Manufactured homes represent an important source of affordable housing, especially in rural areas. We are also dedicated to helping lower income-families build assets for their future, and home equity represents a key asset-building strategy. Homes in co-op parks have been found to sell for more than comparable homes in investor-owned communities, so co-ops are one way to help homeowners gain and preserve assets.
