Impact Seven has developed and manages a diverse portfolio of more than 1,300 quality, affordable housing options for low-income families, including 840 units set aside for elderly persons or persons with disabilities. Projects are located in 55 communities across the state, including many in rural areas and a growing urban portfolio in Milwaukee.
