We are Maiker Housing Partners

 

UNISON HOUSING PARTNERS IS NOW MAIKER HOUSING PARTNERS

As of March 1, Unison Housing Partners has changed its name to Maiker Housing Partners. Although the organization underwent a name change in early 2018, going from Adams County Housing Authority to Unison Housing Partners, it received notice from a California-based for-profit entity challenging their use of the name Unison in early 2019.

As stated by Peter LiFari, Maiker’s Executive Director, “While we continue to believe our organization’s use of the name Unison did not infringe on their trademark due to our difference in services, mission and structure, our leadership chose to move forward with a name change to remain positive stewards of our resources.”

Over the last two years, Maiker has focused on developing a strong and inclusive culture that has evolved the organization and its vision for the future. The new Maiker name better reflects this forward-thinking momentum and the next chapter for the innovative public housing authority serving Adams County.

“Maiker represents the identity and meaning we get from creating a home. For us, creating a home is a combination of a safe, stable and affordable physical space; and a thriving community that provides access to jobs, services, transportation and social engagement for all residents,” said LiFari. “Our name change also represents a movement away from believing institutions know what’s best for people, and toward believing people know what’s best for themselves.”
