About - Community Reinvestment Foundation


Recognized Opportunity

In 1992, two missions-driven real estate developers leveraged a new housing program to merge their business acumen with their passion for global missions. At the time, the federal government was incentivizing nonprofits to step into the country’s aging affordable housing inventory, and that gave these creative, mission-minded leaders the exact opportunity they were looking for. CRF was born.



Over the past two-plus decades, CRF has purchased, rehabbed, and built over 2,200 affordable apartment units across Indiana and Ohio. Those efforts have not only resulted in the preservation and provision of affordable housing for thousands who need it, but have also generated opportunities to help to build schools, orphanages, and churches all over the world.

We constantly seek new ways to grow our business base, creating even more sustainable revenue streams that will continue to impact people both locally and around the world.
