Our Story

High Opportunity Neighborhood Partners

was founded in 2019 with the goal of helping families break the cycle of poverty by providing high-quality homes in High Opportunity Neighborhoods (HON’s) for Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher holders. For many of these voucher holders, it is challenging to find willing landlords given misperceptions and stereotypes about their qualities as tenants. We believe that this perception is fundamentally misguided and these tenants are undervalued. 

Our aim

is to provide exceptional single-family homes and impact services to help our tenants take full advantage of, and integrate into, their new homes and communities. This “Services Enriched Housing” model provides social support both directly and through referrals to partner organizations. Support includes transportation, health & wellness, financial literacy, and job training resources.
