Park City and Summit County, Utah, are experiencing a housing crisis. Historic income inequality and record-high home prices have created a lack of attainable and affordable housing opportunities for our community’s most essential workers.
This includes teachers, firefighters, childcare providers, business owners, athletes, families, younger people who grew up here, and older people who have lived here for decades – all who play a vital role in maintaining our vibrant community.
Housing builds community, and community means belonging. Diego Zegarra, a local leader and community convener, works tirelessly to create a more equitable and just Park City. Purchasing an affordable housing unit offered him stability and belonging.

We need your voice and advocacy to create more opportunities for folks like Diego. Our Housing Fund works to preserve the diverse nature of our mountain community so that our local workforce and people of all backgrounds can continue to live here. In partnership with Mountainlands Community Housing Trust, we are working to inspire local philanthropy to support affordable housing.
A $1 million matching grant is acting as a catalyst to facilitate a multi-million dollar redevelopment project that will improve existing apartments and add new units at Holiday Village and Parkside Apartments. Many of Park City’s most cherished and long-time residents live in these apartments, including community leaders, seniors, and neurodiverse residents living with developmental disabilities.
