In the 1990s, a group of public housing residents began a journey to preserve the stories of communities they saw disappearing. Our Founding Board Chair, Deverra Beverly, was one of the strongest voices. Her vision gave birth to the National Public Housing Museum and her commitment and dedication to realizing the dream of the museum never wavered. Commissioner Beverly has left us, but her dream has not.
When you give to The National Public Housing Museum, you support the programming, outreach, and mission to create a place that recalls the civic good of public housing and preserves the lives and the wisdom of public housing residents.
