Benefits of NAHRO Membership

Professional Development

Significant discounts on all NAHRO training products, from quick online courses to on-site, multi-day classes. NAHRO members stay sharp with a multitude of professional development options. 

Conferences & Events

NAHRO hosts three signature conferences each year, giving housing professionals unparalleled opportunities to learn, connect and grow. 

Information & Inspiration

NAHRO cuts through the noise and delivers the news and analysis that busy housers and community development professionals rely on.

Advocacy & Representation

NAHRO members have access to robust advocacy tools, Congressional appointment scheduling during our annual Hill Day, and more.

Awards & Scholarships

NAHRO members and the students who live in their housing are eligible for a wide range of honors, including agency-wide and individual awards, the What Home Means to Me poster contest, and two scholarship programs for college-bound youth.

Leadership & Career Development

Find business partners and build your career with NAHRO’s job and RFP/RFQ center, opportunities to serve on leadership committees, guidance from veteran housers and networking opportunities with rising professionals.

The most valuable aspects, to me, of my NAHRO membership is the knowledge sharing between agencies, peers, etc. I know that I can reach out to any of my NAHRO colleagues regarding any question at hand, and they will assist me with their knowledge or past experiences in that arena. I have made lifelong friendships throughout my membership that can never be replaced….In addition, the leadership of NAHRO is second to none. There is no other community I would rather belong to. Everyone, from the top down, truly cares about the mission of providing housing to those less fortunate and it shows in the way they run NAHRO, run their agencies, and how they treat their fellow human beings.
