    Over the course of the pandemic, Housing Collaborative had to quickly expand and accelerate its provision of direct financial assistance capacity to help people impacted by Covid. We would never have been able to distribute over $130M in rent and utility assistance without Ascend’s Finance Team, which provided nimble assistance and careful financial oversight, resulting in many households retaining housing – and clean audits for Housing Collaborative!
