Meet the members who continue to give this vision life...
Hyssop Housing Inc. is a collective of womyn who aspire to provide safe, fully sustainable, culturally diverse housing and supportive services for Maturing Lesbians and Queer Womyn of Color and the people who love us.
Hyssop Housing Inc. was formed because of the lack of this specific type of lesbian-friendly housing. We became so incensed by the disparaging plight this shortage put upon close friends, ourselves, and our community in New Jersey we set out to make a change.

Community Investment Strategies
Strategic planners, expert builders, and involved participants
in the communities they design.
Since 1994, Community Investment Strategies (CIS) have proudly developed and
revitalized dozens of properties. They recognize the unique qualities at the heart
of each neighborhood, and design each new community with those details in mind.
CIS communities are thoughtfully designed and developed to improve the lives of
residents and the neighborhoods in which they live, work, and play. CIS focuses on
building communities that feature leading-edge construction practices and
energy-efficient systems designed to exceed area building regulations.
The homes are built to last, utilizing state-of-the-art design techniques that protect our properties and residents. Once construction ends, CIS’ committed management team provides on-site support to residents and operates each building as a long-term investment.
Center for Non-Profits
Helping organizations build a better New Jersey.
Since their founding in 1982, the Center for Non-Profits remains New Jersey’s only umbrella organization for all charities in the state. Through advocacy, management assistance and cost-saving programs, the Center provides non-profits with knowledge, insights and tools so they can pursue their missions more effectively.
