Who We Are

Hope through Housing Foundation was established in 1998 by National Community Renaissance (National CORE), one of the leaders in the affordable housing industry. By the mid-90s, National CORE had gained a reputation for providing high-quality apartment communities and turning around tough neighborhoods negatively affected by poverty, crime, isolation and neglect.

Wanting to do more to help the children, families and seniors who lived in its communities, National CORE created the Hope through Housing. Hope through Housing was incorporated as an independent nonprofit organization to develop and administer a broad range of charitable and educational programs for children, young adults, low-income and underprivileged families and the general public. For the next several years, Hope through Housing focused on providing evidence-based programs and services that:  (1) prepared children to be ready to learn; (2) prepared youth for social and academic success; and (3) allowed seniors to remain healthy and independent.

Today a true collaborative partner with National CORE, Hope through Housing continues to evolve in order to better serve individuals. Hope through Housing has expanded beyond direct services, enhancing our mission to break the cycle of generational poverty through strategies such as building strategic partnerships and regional capacity among providers. We are taking a greater role in advocacy among policymakers and other stakeholders.

Our goal across all of these programs is to direct, leverage, and support community development activities and resources across a variety of partners, resulting in targeted neighborhood transformation around affordable housing sites.
