While COVID 19 stresses the importance of health and saftey we feel its resulting economic impact also highlights an important issue near and dear to us – affordable housing. As a social benefit company, we care about all the communities we are in and the effort made to provide affordable housing to those without means.
A Social Impact Startup
As a company we care about people, the planet and profit. And we know that’s not that weird. Austin, our hometown, is an expensive place to live. As is Houston, NOLA, Portland, and Detroit. And increasingly the amazing, creative, artistic folks that live in our homes can’t afford them. We want to fight that battle and change the notion of what affordable housing looks like. So each tour we do we give a portion of all ticket proceeds towards affordable housing nonprofits in the cities we are in with giving over $17,000 thus far. We think it would be weird NOT to give back to our community.
We also helped produce a short documentary focusing on the issue of affordable housing in Austin.
