Diversity Equity & Inclusion

DMPM is committed to providing information and links to the general public about DMPM and housing assistance offerings in the local community through our resources page.

DMPM Equity Statement:

DMPM is committed to provide the opportunity for affordable housing that is safe, decent, sanitary and free from discrimination. We are also committed to fulfilling this mission with respect, dignity, and compassion for all persons involved. DMPM recognizes we have a responsibility beyond just anti-discrimination in being equitable and inclusive to the differences of all people honoring a diversity of needs and the value of everyone.

To DMPM, inclusion is fostering an environment that welcomes excluded people and groups and creates opportunities for all to participate. Equity is the ability for all people with barriers to access the same opportunity for a home.
We strive to listen to our community and staff in order to advance equity and inclusion in our programs and agency.
