Welcome to Housing Opportunities of
Since 1991, Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky has helped members of the Northern Kentucky community to realize the American dream of homeownership by providing affordable housing solutions to deserving families and individuals, allowing them to reconstruct their lives by building their futures on a solid foundation of faith, education, and support.
With the help of our numerous volunteers, corporate and community partners throughout the Northern Kentucky region, we continue to fulfill our mission of changing lives, strengthening neighborhoods and building hope, one home and one family at a time. To help us achieve 20 more years, click here.
Our Four Major Activities
Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky rehabilitates existing housing stock and constructs new housing for very low, low and moderate income working families.
Affordable Housing Management
Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky is a lease-purchase model of homeownership. HONK performs primary maintenance tasks to ensure the quality and security of the dwelling. In preparation for ownership, residents are asked to do routine homeowner tasks such as shoveling snow, mowing lawns, etc.
Once clients are accepted into our program, the staff of Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky provides individual and group homeowner, budget and credit counseling. Additionally, HONK staff recommends and provides necessary resources for other social services as the client-families present such needs. As the prospective homeowner approaches purchase, HONK’s staff provides, either directly or indirectly, mortgage and finance counseling.
Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky provides for and coordinates volunteer and community service opportunities to area church, school and civic organizations. In calendar 2006, HONK volunteers logged more than 12,000 volunteer hours.
