Information about the Services Provider

Believing that both people and place matter in achieving community-wide well-being, Hope through Housing concentrates on direct services, partnerships, and other resources right in the neighborhoods that need them most. At the individual level, our goal is to see all people thrive—whether that means helping children do well in school, improving families’ financial situations, providing supportive services to individuals with special needs, or making it possible for seniors to age with dignity in their own homes. These individual successes add up, influencing the community’s quality of life and enabling real change in neighborhoods of poverty, crime, blight, and isolation.
