It’s a shame that UHS is so poorly managed because the concept of “affordable housing” in Nashville is so hard to come by these days. I lived at North Fourth for 1.5 years and only stayed because I lo...ved my apartment, though it did come with its fair share of problems.

My biggest complaint: PEGGY SLAVEN, the most out-dated and non-responsive Property Manager that I’ve ever encountered (and I’m in the industry). Calling over and over only to get VM; forwarding and re-forwarding emails only to get a nonchalant answer with no solution.

Peggy’s hands were always tied (even though she couldn’t name a person above her). While living there, I had TWO mold issues - in which I paid a lot of out of pocket costs because Peggy had no ounce of empathy. The first mold issue took 3.5 months to “fix.” The second mold issue was due to their lack of thoroughness when “fixing” my upstairs neighbor’s roof leak.

DO NOT RENT HERE. It’s not worth the trouble. Now I’m fighting Peggy for my security deposit because she input the wrong forwarding address (that I had written clearly in an email). Naturally, she’s been non-responsive.

Over 200,000 people in Nashville cannot afford housing. We need your help to solve the affordable housing crisis...

Thanks to the Metro Council members who journeyed with us today! Six nonprofit housing agencies sponsored a bus tour that showed guests how the nonprofits are helping to solve the affordable housing crisis in Nashville and what we need to make an even bigger impact!

Our nonprofit partners were: Affordable Housing Resources, Be A Helping Hand, Habitat, New Level Community Development Corp., and The Housing Fund.

Yesterday, Julia Green Elementary School in Nashville donated over 300 cans of green beans to UHS! These will be used for our Last Saturday Dinners throughout the upcoming year.

A huge thanks to all the students for their amazing efforts!

Would you mind living next to security guards, bus drivers, adjunct professors, web designers, childcare workers, or bank tellers? These people are just some of the people needing affordable housing. Say yes to affordable housing in your back yard!

The executive director of the Tennessee Housing Development Authority says Nashville wants more affordable housing but often ends up getting in its own way

It's feeling like spring and UHS is getting ready! The playgrounds at some of our properties have been re-mulched and we have plans for some upgrades so our young residents have safe places to play outdoors! Do you remember hopscotch and four-square?

Lots of Love for UHS this season -

Wells Fargo showed UHS some love! The funds are for Phase 2 of 26th & Clarksville, a new building that will have 63 affordable housing units and commercial space on the street level.

Here's an UHS success story!!

Mr. M. moved out of his two-bedroom apartment last week after residing there for more than three years. Mr. M. has worked hard, saved, and prepared for this day, the day he is able to buy a home for his children and himself. Mr. M. is proof that many individuals come to UHS with the hope they will someday be able to afford their own home, making UHS properties a very important transition period in many people’s lives.

UHS was one of nearly 100 exhibitors at Vanderbilt's HOD Internship Fair. 150 students attended. Five students were interested in UHS!

UHS knows the importance of community support. So, our own Kelsey Oesmann spoke on a panel a community meeting about Nashville's transit plan and the relationship to affordable housing.

The Last Saturday Dinner was a huge success! Montgomery Bell Academy cooked up an amazing meal for our residents who thoroughly enjoyed it! Photos show MBA students cooking, preparing tables, serving food, and cleaning up. Thanks MBA for a stupendous job!

Urban Housing Solutions has been part of Mayor Barry's Affordability + Transit Task Force. It recommended at least $100 million in new funding be made available to develop and preserve affordable housing and commercial space in and around high capacity transit corridors.

“Housing and transportation are inseparable issues, as together they represent the highest cost-burdens for most working families. If Nashville voters adopt Metro’s Transportation Solution in May of next year, we’ll face a tremendous opportunity to create affordable housing and commercial spac...

It looks like Nashville's finally thawing after the ice and snow of the past week. Wintry weather didn't slow down UHS. Our maintenance teams used dozens of bags of salt to keep our steps and sidewalks clear. We had 7 new residents sign leases and move in. Service Coordinators stayed connected with residents to ensure basic needs were met. And it's never too cold to think about new ways to address the need for affordable housing in our city. #nosnowdays;

One of the main ways UHS subsidizes the rent for our formerly homeless resident comes from this program. We're glad to see this good news!

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today awarded a record $2 billion to support more than 7,300 local homeless assistance programs across the nation. HUD's Continuum of Care grants provide critically needed support to local programs on the front lines of serving indi...

One year is nearing the end while another waits to begin. Here's a reminder that our offices will be closed Jan 1, 2018. We'll start 2018 on Jan 2.

Did you know there's a Girl Scout troop for girls experiencing homelessness? UHS does and we're grateful that the troop helped make disaster kits for our residents. A girl's housing status should not determine her opportunities. We're glad to partner with Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee and can't wait to see what the future holds for this troop!
