The Phoenix Residential Investment Development Effort (PRIDE) is a private non-profit, non-stock corporation created in 1989 to assist in the community's efforts to provide affordable housing within the Phoenix corporate limits. The corporation was organized to pursue development and/or acquisition opportunities that will promote or increase the supply of housing that is affordable to low- and moderate-income households.  PRIDE will undertake projects for its own account, under contract or in conjunction with the City of Phoenix, or as a joint venture partner with other corporate or private entities.

​The primary organizational goals of PRIDE are:

  • To develop, promote and otherwise assist in the establishment and operation of low or moderate income housing.
  • To combat community deterioration.
  • To secure adequate housing, community facilities and other related facilities and services conducive to the progress and general welfare of the City of Phoenix.
