Harold Ostroff


There has been no more articulate voice on behalf of the American consumer than that of Harold Ostroff, who brought the labor movement and cooperative movement together to achieve major accomplishments in cooperative housing, insurance and food stores. As president of the United Housing Foundation in New York City, he was instrumental in developing affordable housing for more than 100,000 fellow citizens, was founder and chairman of the Urban Community Insurance Company, and helped organize retail societies as president of the Federation of Cooperative, Inc. In addition, Ostroff served as chairman of the Cooperative League the USA and was a director of the National Association of Housing Cooperatives and the Cooperative Development Foundation.
